Outcomes Estimation Tools Training Webinar Series 

American Farmland Trust (AFT) researches tools and methods to help farmers and conservation professionals estimate and report on outcomes associated with farm conservation practice adoption. In 2020, AFT released an Outcomes Estimation Tools Guide to help farm conservation project managers identify user-friendly tools and methods to quantify the water quality, climate, social, and economic outcomes of farm practices.     

American Farmland Trust’s Outcomes Estimation Tools Training Webinar Series (2023-2024) provides farm conservation project managers with information about the different tools that are available.  Each webinar features a developer of an outcomes estimation tool who provides extensive training and guidance in the usage and application of their tool. See the links below to watch previous webinars.

The webinars occur on the first Wednesday of each month starting May 2023 and will run through 2024.  Learn more about the webinar series and see the schedule.
