The new Natural and Working Lands Initiative of the United States Climate Alliance will identify best practices for land conservation, management, and restoration to develop a carbon storage policy framework for implementation. Through the support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, states in the Alliance will work with leading non-governmental organization partners American Forests, The Nature Conservancy, World Resources Institute, American Farmland Trust, the Coalition on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases, and Trust for Public Land to pursue shared goals. One of the Initiative's first actions is hosting a Learning Lab in Washington, DC, July 9-11, 2018, where member states will work with more than 50 leading experts in the field of land-based carbon mitigation from government, academia, nonprofits, landowners and industry. Workshops are designed to help states better grasp natural and working lands carbon sequestration and emission reduction opportunities and learn how to capture them through policy and financial measures.
