Work Group Activities
Delivering Sustainable Resilience
Over the course of 2022, the Work Group met three times to discuss and assess the impact that climate change and other challenges are having on their operations and identify pathways that can help producers:
- sustainably increase agricultural productivity and livelihoods;
- enhance adaptive capacity and improve resilience; and
- deliver ecosystem services, sequester carbon, and reduce and/or avoid greenhouse gas emissions.
Their Phase One report summarizes their work, findings, and recommendations.
In a second phase of work, INSA will invite stakeholders from across the agriculture and forestry value chains in Indiana to join them in forming a multi-stakeholder, cross boundary collaborative that together will construct and build support for climate smart strategy and action plan that can guide future policies, programs, partnerships, and investments needed for Indiana agriculture to adapt and thrive.
