Sarah Carter was invited to participate in a workshop held December 14th by the City of Boulder, in conjunction with Boulder County, focused on informing the development of methodologies and tools that can be used to prioritize work to combat desertification on agricultural lands and grasslands in and around Boulder County.

This effort is part of the City of Boulder's Nature-based Climate Solutions initiative. The tool will be designed for use by land managers, policy makers, and other decision makers to assess the vulnerability of lands to climate change magnified degradation and extreme drying, and will inform the development and application of incentives for land management practices that increase the land’s capacity to retain and cycle water.

USDA-NRCS was heavily represented at the workshop, along with NGO and university staff, as well as staff from Boulder.
