The sixth annual Science on the Hill event will bring together policy leaders and scientists for a panel discussion on the best available scientific evidence about approaches for reducing climate change through climate-smart agriculture.
Agricultural activities account for 11% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. While broader land use, land-use change, and forestry removes roughly the same amount of carbon, evidence suggests opportunities for the agricultural sector to both reduce its contributions to U.S. emissions as well as sequester carbon from other sectors. Panelists will share their perspectives on such opportunities that help producers thrive, support the economy, and promote healthy ecosystems, as well as discuss implications for policy options, including for relevant portions of the Farm Bill.
