Maine Climate Table webinar: Putting a Price Tag on Natural Climate Solutions
May 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Adam Daigneault, E.L. Giddings Assistant Professor of Forest, Conservation, and Recreation Policy and Mitchell Center Faculty Fellow, University of Maine
Natural climate solutions are defined as “conservation, restoration, or improved land management actions that increase carbon storage or avoid greenhouse gas emissions across forests, wetlands, grasslands, and agricultural lands.” They are often described as “low-hanging-fruit” relative to other more costly solutions, such as everyone switching to electric vehicles today. Still, the devil is in the details, and it’s important to understand the costs of different natural climate solutions before we embark on policy recommendations. Join the Maine Climate Table and Adam Daigneault for a layman’s “101” class on pricing natural climate solutions for the agriculture sector in Maine, and why it matters.
