Climate Smart Agriculture: Impacts from the Affordable Clean Energy Plan

8-23-2023 at 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Learn more about the 2023 Farm Bill, the reauthorization process, and why climate smart conservation programs are so vital to addressing the climate crisis. The historic passage of the Affordable Clean Energy Plan is at the one year mark, and along with the extensive clean energy programs is a $20 billion Farm Bill. There is no shortage of threats to cutting various conservation and climate smart agricultural components within the Farm Bill, and it is essential that throughout the legislative process that these programs remain intact. A robust and clean Farm Bill will have a significant impact on farming livelihood, how food is grown, and addressing long standing inequities in our food systems for farmers of color. This legislation covers programs ranging from crop insurance for farmers, to healthy food access for low-income families, supporting sustainable farming practices and more.
