North America Climate Smart Agriculture Alliance (NACSAA)

Regional CSA Alliances such as the North America Climate Smart Agriculture Alliance (NACSAA) is a farmer-led platform for inspiring, educating, and equipping agricultural partners to innovate effective local adaptations that sustain productivity, enhance climate resilience, and contribute to the local and global goals for sustainable development. NACSAA reflects and embraces all scales of agriculture in Canada, Mexico and the United States, ranging from small landholders to midsize and large-scale producers.

NACSAA encourages CSA strategies to enhance the adaptive capacity of North American agriculture to changing climate conditions. CSA Alliances are seen as a vehicle for bringing together all those constituencies to resolve differences and forge innovative solutions.
