State agriculture officials raise united voice on climate resiliency at NASDA Annual Meeting

Albuquerque, New MexicoToday, the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture adopted new climate resiliency policy at NASDA’s Annual Meeting. NASDA acknowledges the necessity of adapting to a changing climate to protect and enhance our nation’s natural resources, while also building a resilient agricultural and food supply chain.“We’re elevating our united voice on resiliency and climate-smart solutions. We must accelerate our work on supporting environmental stewardship within the agricultural and food industry,” NASDA CEO Dr. Barb Glenn said. “Joined together as agricultural leaders with the authority and responsibility to cultivate positive change in their states, NASDA members can make a lasting impact for the nation’s environment.” NASDA’s policy asserts that addressing climate resiliency in agriculture requires a comprehensive approach. NASDA encourages the collaboration of governments, corporations and philanthropic communities to develop incentive-based programs and pursue research that helps agriculture adapt to the effects of a changing climate. A new NASDA partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund was announced yesterday, emphasizing the importance of additional and creative funding sources. The co-published report demonstrates success stories of state-led conservation programs funded through unique sources. “In addition to establishing unique programs, incentive-based financing and assistance provides financial protection for farmers who take on risk when incorporating new on-farm practices into their business operations,” Glenn said. California Secretary of Agriculture Karen Ross introduced the policy amendment. “Recognizing and supporting the voluntary actions of the nation’s farmers and ranchers to protect and enhance land, water and other natural resources is critical as we continue to address a changing climate,” said California Department of Food and Agriculture Secretary Karen Ross. “California is pleased to join and support NASDA in taking action at the federal level on climate smart agriculture programs.” ### NASDA is a nonpartisan, nonprofit association which represents the elected and appointed commissioners, secretaries, and directors of the departments of agriculture in all fifty states and four U.S. territories. NASDA grows and enhances agriculture by forging partnerships and creating consensus to achieve sound policy outcomes between state departments of agriculture, the federal government, and stakeholders.
