Climate action: how agriculture offers the solutions to climate change

6th November 2019

On 28-30 October, the third of SAI Platform’ cross-commodity Learning Journey series, visited California, USA. Members and invited partners visited three different micro-environments and eco systems in California including the Sacramento Area, Fresno and the Salinas Valley. 

Agricultural practice in California is a leading example in the US as the only state with GHG regulations via legislation. Attendees saw first-hand the role of agriculture in reducing and combatting global warming. Visiting the Sacramento Area, Fresno and the Salinas Valley demonstrated how farmers, companies and government alike are implementing new adaption methods to fight climate change and mitigate risk in agri-food systems.
