House Climate Committee Action Plan Addresses Agriculture

The national action plan released by the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis includes a chapter on agriculture, reports the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC). According to NSAC, “The agriculture section of the Select Committee’s report includes seven major components—increasing carbon sequestration and resilience, decreasing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions, improving technical assistance and research, supporting on-farm renewable energy and energy efficiency, supporting the next generation of farmers, preserving farmland, and reducing food waste.” NSAC highlighted recommendations in the plan that pertain to sustainable agriculture in a blog post.
