AFT works to establish innovative payments for ecosystem services programs that build on early water quality trading markets to help improve water quality.

We are a member of Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, a consortium of grower groups, agribusiness companies, brand and retail companies, and representatives of “civil society” that works collaboratively to define, measure, and advance the sustainability of food, fiber, and fuel production in the United States.

As a representative from the civil society sector, AFT is aiming to ensure that farmers are appropriately supported in their adoption of the conservation practices that are desired by companies to satisfy corporate water and climate sustainability goals.
