Transforming the Food and Land-Use Sector in America's Zero-Carbon Action Plan
Climate change represents a profound policy challenge to America and the world – requiring a response at a sweeping scale and with unprecedented speed centered on remaking the energy foundations of our society. The move to a clean and renewable energy future must be advanced at the same time America works to recover from the most serious pandemic in a century and the parallel economic collapse triggered by Covid-19.

In response to this challenge, the USA Network of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) has produced America's Zero-Carbon Action Plan (ZCAP), a comprehensive policy report that presents a strategic plan to create a carbon-neutral economy for the United States by 2050, anchored in key findings from a previous SDSN report, Achieving Carbon Neutrality in the United States. The ZCAP was designed by a cohort of more than 100 researchers and 19 Chairs who make up the Zero Carbon Consortium, who are experts in their fields of climate change policy; clean energy pathways modeling; industrial policy high-employment green economies; legislative and regulatory policy; electricity (power) generation; transportation; industry; buildings; sustainable land-use; and sustainable materials management.

This webinar will focus on Chapter 5.5 of the ZCAP report: Accelerating Sustainable Land Use Practices in the U.S. Below are the topics to be discussed and the speakers.

Siting Renewable Energy Infrastructure, Jennifer Sklarew (George Mason University)
Promoting Reforestation, Michael Jacobson (Pennsylvania State University)
Soil Carbon Storage & Biofuels, David Kanter (New York University)
Promoting Low-Carbon Diets & Reducing Waste, Gordon McCord (UC San Diego)
