Blueprint for a California Program on Climate and Agriculture

The California Climate and Agriculture Network (CalCAN) developed this Blueprint, with input from agriculture and climate change experts, to offer recommendations for the design of a state-funded California Program on Agriculture and Climate (CPAC). The Blueprint is intended to:

  • Provide an overview of the ways agriculture can play a constructive role in achieving the state’s Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32) goals and meeting the state’s related policy objectives found in Senate Bill 535 (SB 535) and AB 1532
  • Inform the implementation of a California-wide agricultural program to catalyze farm and ranch practices that mitigate climate change in diverse regions, crops, livestock, and scales and provide co-benefits to our economy, environment and public health
  • Highlight “shovel-ready” climate solutions already being practiced by some of California’s most innovative farmers and ranchers
