As policymakers consider economic recovery in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, natural climate solutions—working with farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners to adopt climate-smart practices—offer an opportunity to boost the rural economy while tackling climate change. Investments can help agriculture and forestry as well as outdoor recreation, hunting, and fishing.
Please join the Bipartisan Policy Center for a discussion on how to advance both near- and long-term goals for helping Americans get back to work, supporting rural economic development, and enhancing the environmental and climate change-related contributions of U.S. farms, ranches, and forests.
