What is Climate Smart Agriculture?






Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) addresses the risk that the agriculture industry faces due to changing climate conditions. It encompasses management practices that increase soil carbon, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve on-farm efficiencies, and promote sustainable land practices.  CSA promotes increasing agricultural productivity, building resiliency to climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
