ASA is a member of the Food and Agriculture Climate Alliance. Organizations representing farmers, forest owners, the food sector, state governments and environmental advocates formed FACA to present policy recommendations that help guide the development of federal climate legislation. These groups including ASA are working together to promote shared climate policy priorities related to three principles:  1) support voluntary, market- and incentive-based policies, 2) advance science-based outcomes, and 3) promote resilience and help rural economies better adapt to climate change.

ASA is committed to working with Congress and the administration on sustainability policy initiatives and having a seat at the table during climate policy discussions. ASA’s farmer-leaders and staff are pleased to work with fellow FACA members on collaborative efforts supporting agricultural needs and capabilities.
