For agriculture to become the climate change solution, we must work collaboratively and work at scale. Farmers and scientists must collaborate, operating with one vision and one voice so agriculture will not just slow the pace of climate change but reverse it.
The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR), the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA), and the World Farmers Organization (WFO), propose “a living solution to climate change in Agriculture.” FFAR, USFRA and WFO hope to mobilize farmers, scientists, partner organizations and financial resources to develop and implement emissions-reducing innovations at scales and rates previously imagined. Understanding the potential benefits and challenges, USFRA, WFO, and FFAR believe that it is imperative that we explore the needs and challenges of climate change on agriculture, and bring together other stakeholders in the space and continue to identify obstacles and opportunities.
