Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) addresses the risks that climate change poses to agriculture.
It encompasses management practices that:

The California Department of Food and Agriculture's climate smart agriculture programs provide funding to growers to help them implement practices that build resiliency to climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
