Twenty-three governors have joined the U.S. Climate Alliance and committed to uphold the goals of the international Paris Climate Agreement. These leaders identify carbon sequestration on natural and working lands as an important strategy for meeting their statewide GHG reduction goals. The U.S. Climate Alliance’s Natural and Working Lands Challenge lays out a bold agenda for advancing the science and implementation of natural climate solutions, and states are rising to meet the Challenge. Learn about the U.S. Climate Alliance states’ efforts to chart an ambitious path forward across forests, farmland, ranchland, grasslands, wetlands and urban land and how land trusts can get engaged.
