NB 180-22-3 CPA – Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 NRCS Climate Smart Agriculture and Forestry (CSAF) Mitigation Practice List
National Bulletin: 180-22-3 Date: November 23, 2021
Subject: CPA – Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 NRCS Climate Smart Agriculture and Forestry (CSAF) Mitigation Practice List


 
Purpose.   To transmit to States and the Caribbean and Pacific Island Areas the FY 2022 list of CSAF mitigation practices, including enhancement activities for conservation planning and program implementation.   
 
Expiration Date.   September 30, 2022
 
Background.   NRCS technical specialists have identified 33 conservation practices and 81 enhancement activities that deliver quantifiable climate solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance carbon sequestration in a quantifiable manner, which help to reduce the carbon footprint of the U.S. agricultural sector.
 
Explanation.   The CSAF mitigation practice list (Attachment A) was developed in collaboration between the Science and Technology and Programs and Planning Deputy Areas to identify additional opportunities for delivering conservation practices and activities that provide quantifiable atmospheric benefits and address the root causes of global climate change. Conservation planners may use this list during development of conservation plans to meet State or national targets for CSAF. Data are compiled through national databases, so staff from States and local offices are not required to collect additional information when planning or implementing these practices and activities.
