The Sustainable Agricultural Lands Conservation Program (SALC Program) is a component of the Strategic Growth Council (SGC) Affordable Housing and Sustainability Program (AHSC). The SALC Program complements investments made in urban areas with the purchase of agricultural conservation easements, development of agricultural land strategy plans, and other mechanisms that result in GHG reductions and a more resilient agricultural sector.
Agricultural Conservation Easements
Under the Cap-and-Trade Auction Proceeds Second Investment Plan, California aims to invest California Climate Investment dollars in the conservation of working lands in order to facilitate net climate benefits and long term carbon sequestration in the land base.
Preventing the conversion of agricultural land to residential or rural residential development avoids vehicle miles traveled and related greenhouse gas emissions.
