U.S. forests store the equivalent of 52 years’ worth of the country’s carbon emissions, and even in today’s highly partisan political climate, conserving our forests, planting more trees, and improving agricultural practices are initiatives with bipartisan support. But how exactly can policy effectively incentivize farmers and landowners to reforest their lands and improve their management?
Just as carbon pollution pricing can serve as a market signal for businesses and individuals to choose cleaner energy, agricultural incentives can promote regenerative agriculture and carbon sequestration through land and crop management. Join us for our May Deep Dive webinar, where we will explore how agriculture can be a key part of climate change mitigation, and how we can harness the power of nature to achieve critical climate goals.
We’ll sit down with three experts in the field — Jessie Martin, the Executive Director of Carbon Washington, Max Neuemayer, the Policy Director of Mad Agriculture, and Matthew Sheffer, the Managing Director of Hudson Carbon — to discuss the potential of natural lands to play a role in combating climate change, and how we can incentivize best practices.
