Forests and Farms: Allies in Climate Solutions - #CCL2019 Conference

June 21, 2019

Jad Daley, President & CEO, American Forests
Debbie Reed, Executive Director, Ecosystem Services Market Consortium (ESMC)
Moderated by CCL Agriculture Action Team Lead Jan Elise Storm
Forests, farms and wetlands in the United States already provide a substantial net carbon sink and have the capacity to reduce net annual greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. by up to 21% through actions that will increase carbon storage and avoid greenhouse gas emissions. This session will show how leveraging management of forests and farms to deliver these reductions can amplify the impact of an economy-wide carbon price (e.g., the EICDA) on atmospheric carbon levels, making climate stabilization by 2050 more possible -- all while achieving multiple ecological co-benefits.
