Stanford Climate-Smart Agriculture Webinar
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) "climate-smart" agriculture initiative is seeking to improve how climate benefits associated with the adoption of agricultural practices that increase carbon in soils and/or reduce methane or nitrous oxide emissions are measured, monitored, reported and verified (MMRV). To help advance this important USDA policy goal, Stanford University and the Bezos Earth Fund, with assistance from the Farmers Business Network, will be hosting a webinar-workshop on March 8th at 1:00-2:30 pm ET/10:00-11:30 PT that will highlight seven innovative MMRV approaches that will be piloted under the USDA's Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities program. The purpose of the webinar is to raise awareness and provide interested parties with an opportunity to learn about leading MMRV options that potentially could reduce large uncertainties now prevalent in greenhouse gas modeling exercises. No specific technologies or methodologies will be endorsed. Short presentations will be made by EarthOptics, Yard Stick, Planet, Lithoscarbon; HabiTerre; Perennial; and the Environmental Defense Fund, followed by a question-and-answer opportunity.

By way of additional background, the webinar is one facet of a climate-smart agriculture "practicum" project that graduate students from Stanford's law, business and sustainability schools are participating in, and which will be the subject of a public report that will be released in the coming weeks.

We are inviting a broad-based audience for the webinar that includes governmental officials, farmers and other agriculture industry representatives, NGOs, academics, and policy-makers. Please feel free to forward the invitation to others.
