In its most recent report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change underscored that reaching global net-zero emissions will not be possible without contributions from agriculture, forestry, and lands. Panelists will discuss how U.S. agriculture and forestry can deliver the necessary large-scale greenhouse gas emission reductions and enhanced carbon removals, including recommendations from the BPC Farm and Forest Carbon Solutions Task Force’s recent report, Federal Policies to Advance Natural Climate Solutions. The upcoming Farm Bill will be a major opportunity to strengthen rural economies, build climate resilience, deliver critical ecosystem benefits, and help America’s farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners continue to meet national and global demand for food and renewable resources.
