Agricultural Conservation Easements

Under the Cap-and-Trade Auction Proceeds Third 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.
