Agricultural Drought and Climate Resilience Office (ADCRO)

Agricultural Drought and Climate Resilience Office (ADCRO)

Drought and climate change present serious threats to Colorado’s agricultural production and rural economies. However, farm and ranch management also provide a key to both mitigate climate impacts and create a more resilient Colorado. CDA’s Agricultural Drought and Climate Resilience Office (ADCRO) drives policy and supports programming that strengthens Colorado’s producers’ ability to mitigate and respond to drought and a changing climate. 

Working closely with farmers, ranchers, commodity groups, state and local agencies, and the US Dept of Agriculture, ADCRO provides voluntary technical assistance, non-regulatory programs, and incentives to producers to increase their ability to anticipate, prepare for, mitigate, adapt to, and respond to hazardous events and trends related to drought or the climate.


Climate Change and Agriculture

Colorado’s farmers and ranchers are key players in the State’s climate goals. Farm and ranch management can lead to reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, increased carbon sequestration, and increased climate resilience for the State, as well as many important co-benefits. Climate smart agricultural production also increases food security, supports rural economies, and increases biodiversity.  

CDA is working on state policies built to protect the health and prosperity of Colorado farmers, ranchers, rural communities, and businesses - both now and in the future - in the key areas of mitigation, adaptation, and equitable transition. Read more about Colorado’s Climate work here.

Updating Colorado's Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction Roadmap

Colorado state agencies are currently working with stakeholders and the public to update the state’s 2021 Greenhouse Pollution Reduction Roadmap. 
The Roadmap includes legislative, administrative, and regulatory actions the State may take to meet our GHG reduction goals. Public comment period ended Dec, 2023. The final update, including modeling on how the new near term actions will impact total ghg emissions reductions, will be published in Spring, 2024.
