Estimating the Greenhouse Gas Benefits of NRCS' Applied Practices

Webinar - Thursday, April 29 at 3 p.m. ET 

NRCS works with agricultural producers across the country to deliver voluntary climate solutions through climate-smart production decisions and practice applications. NRCS has established conservation practice standards to guide the design, installation, and maintenance of conservation practices, and there are approximately 35 NRCS conservation practice standards that deliver quantifiable carbon sequestration and/or greenhouse gas reductions. In this presentation, Dr. Adam Chambers will provide an overview of the quantification methodologies used by NRCS to estimate those potential climate benefits from NRCS practices like windbreaks, cover crops, no-till and many more. The benefits of these voluntary practice standards represent the direct benefits, co-benefits and ancillary benefits of working lands conservation.

Dr. Adam Chambers leads Environmental Markets activities under NRCS’s Energy and Environmental Markets Team. Adam’s work focuses on leveraging markets that value ecosystem services and building strategic partnerships that result in more conservation on the ground. His current focus is on implementing conservation practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance carbon sequestration in soils.
