Agriculture as a Climate Solution

Carbon in our atmosphere can be stored in soils and biomass, pumped down with the help of trees and perennial ecosystems. As the climate crisis worsens, we must scale up agroforestry and perennial agriculture to make agriculture a climate solution.

Tue 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Day 1: Agroforestry for Carbon Drawdown

 

Monday, June 28th, 2021

9am -5pm CST

Carbon in our atmosphere can be stored in soils and biomass, pumped down with the help of trees and perennial ecosystems. As the climate crisis worsens, we must scale up agroforestry and perennial agriculture to make agriculture a climate solution.

Day 2: The Tree Toolbox

 

Tuesday, June 29th, 2021

9am -5pm CST

Food, forages, fiber, and more: the toolbox of trees is deep, multifunctional, ancient, and plentiful. We will explore the major opportunities agroforestry presents.

Day 3: Financing the Transition

 

Wednesday, June 30th, 2021

9am -5pm CST

Creative and innovative financial strategies will be required to transform agriculture with trees and keep carbon sequestered. We will explore the many mechanisms that can bridge the transition to equitable, just, and resilient agroforestry and perennial agriculture.

Day 4: Access to Land & Markets

 

Thursday, July 1st, 2021

9am -5pm CST

Before farmers can confidently scale up, they need to secure land tenure and robust supply chains. We will explore how these barriers can be turned into opportunities for local communities and become part of equitable food systems.

Day 5: Mobilizing Deep-rooted Agriculture

 

Friday, July 2nd, 2021

9am -5pm CST

We will look back over our collective learning and plan our perennial path forward. From cross-cutting policy to grassroots organizing, we need strong action to create a future where the climate crisis does not exist.
