Our farms and food are vulnerable to climate change—and it’s costing all of us.
NRDC works with farmers to promote techniques that build resilience to temperature shifts, floods, and drought. We partner with industry leaders to help reform crop insurance and other policies and reward farmers who help prevent the worst impacts of climate change by saving water and taking care of their soil.
What We're Doing
As long droughts become more and more common, we're pushing farmers to embrace sustainable practices that increase soil health and use water more efficiently.
Farming in harmony with nature fights climate change, improves water quality, and protects biodiversity. NRDC works with growers, ranchers, and community leaders to craft policies for a regenerative farm and food system.
