Policy

MCP engages policymakers at the local, regional, state, and federal levels to educate agency staff and decision makers on MCP’s research findings and their implications for the role of agriculture, in general, and rangelands, specifically, in improving soil health, water quality, on-farm productivity, ecosystems services, and climate change. 

MCP advocates for policies that can support producers to receive recognition, technical assistance, and economic incentives for adoption of carbon- and climate-friendly land management practices.  A major area of focus is ensuring that climate policies, programs, and funding support climate-friendly agriculture, including those deployed on ranches and farms in Marin County.
