Did The Paris Climate Agreement Forget About Something?
New research suggests small farms can play a big part in the battle against climate change.By Lindsay Gloor | November 29, 2016
While the Paris climate agreement has been heralded as a landmark decision in the fight against climate change, new research suggests the deal left out one vital group.

And according to the Rural and Agricultural Finance Learning Lab, farmers who work with a single plot of land can make a big difference.
