WWF Statement on the Introduction of The Agriculture Resilience Act

In response to the introduction of The Agriculture Resilience Act, World Wildlife Fund released the following statement from Melissa Ho, senior vice president of freshwater and food:

“While agriculture production currently accounts for almost a quarter of global, human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, the agriculture sector has the unique ability to be part of the climate solution.

“The Agriculture Resilience Act is an important and commendable effort to more comprehensively address the climate crisis though agricultural solutions. This bill attempts to leverage a range of programs and incentives that support win-win outcomes for producers and for nature, and sets a new level of ambition for the role of US agriculture in responding to climate change.”
