“Putting a price-tag on Natural Climate Solutions”
Dr. Adam Daigneault, E.L. Giddings Assistant Professor of Forest, Conservation, and Recreation Policy, 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.” Natural solutions are often described as “low-hanging-fruit” relative to other more costly solutions, such as switching to electric vehicles. Still, the devil is in the details, and it’s essential that we calculate the costs of different natural climate solutions before we embark on policy recommendations. Join the Maine Climate Table and Dr. Adam Daigneault for a layman’s “101” class on pricing different natural climate solutions for the agriculture sector in Maine, and why it matters.
