In December of 2020, American Farmland Trust published “A Guide to Water Quality, Climate, Social, and Economic Outcomes Estimation Tools: Quantifying Outcomes to Accelerate Farm Conservation Practice Adoption.”
The guide features 14 outcomes estimation tools and two methods, which can be used by farm conservation project managers without requiring professional computer modeling experience. In this webinar, AFT:
- Presented tips on how farm conservation project managers can use the Guide to identify a tool or a method that might work for them;
- Compared and contrast tools that are suited for field versus project evaluation and tools that offer site-specific versus generalized estimates; and
- Reviewed recommendations that will foster further refinement of the existing tools and methods and better support project managers.
