Farmer Co-ops Express Support for Food & Ag Climate Alliance Farm Bill Recommendations

Press Releases
Washington, D.C. (February 22, 2023)–The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives reiterated its support for the farm bill recommendations released today by the Food and Agriculture Climate Alliance, or FACA. NCFC is a co-chair and a founding member of the alliance and NCFC staff worked closely with the other FACA steering committee members in developing these recommendations over the past six months. “As Congress begins the process of writing the next farm bill, we believe FACA’s recommendations provide a template for voluntary, science- and incentive-based programs to help producers adopt climate-friendly farming practices and help address the issue of climate change,” said Chuck Conner, president and CEO of NCFC. “FACA represents an unprecedented coming together of farm, food and environmental groups working together towards a common goal on climate and we believe that the coalition is building on its previous success with this set of recommendations.” FACA’s recommendations, developed by the 23-member steering committee, are divided into six categories:
  • Conservation, risk management and credit
  • Energy
  • Food waste
  • Forestry
  • Livestock and dairy
  • Research, Extension and innovation
The entire set of FACA recommendations are on the coalition web site.
