The California Climate and Agriculture Network (CalCAN) is a sustainable agriculture coalition that advances policy solutions at the nexus of climate change and sustainable agriculture. We provide resources to farmers and ranchers on the impacts of climate policy on California agriculture and on organic and sustainable practices that have climate benefits. We also advance policies that support and encourage farming and ranching practices that have climate benefits and other environmental co-benefits.
CalCAN represents the interests of small and medium-sized farmers and ranchers and socially disadvantaged farmers on climate policy at the state and federal level. We provide opportunities for farmers to engage in policy advocacy that creates resources and incentives for making a transition to climate smart farming practices.
