Agriculture AND CLIMATE CHANGE
Agriculture and food systems are substantial contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, changing climate imperils agriculture and the ability to feed the world's population. All over the world, innovations in sustainable agriculture, including forest conservation, can help to counter climate change by decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing carbon sequestration. At the same time, agriculture must adapt to an inevitably changing climate. The Ida and Robert Gordon Family Foundation is pleased to support projects that offer promise in this vital area as well as related environmental challenges. To further support and effectuate its mission, the Gordon Family Foundation is a member of the Environmental Grantmakers Association and the New York City Climate Action Alliance.
