Ag Alliance to fight climate change gains momentum
In an effort to assist the Biden administration’s effort to combat climate change, an alliance between organizations which have butted heads in the past is forming. The Food and Agriculture Alliance (FACA), a mix of agriculture and environmental organizations, have now ballooned to 42 members.
FACA consists of entities representing farmers, ranchers, forest owners, the food sector, state governments and environmental advocates which work together to define and promote climate policy priorities. The Biden administration and Congress have expressed interested in FACA’s recommendations and will be working with the organizations on how to achieve their proposed climate change goals. In response, the alliance’s policy working groups are producing more detailed and specific proposals focusing on the carbon bank concept, tax credits and other incentives, as well as climate research.
