Climate Smart Commodities – Program Forester – Littleton, MA

Climate Smart Commodities – Program Forester
New England Forestry Foundation
Littleton, MA

The USDA recently awarded NEFF a $30 million grant under their Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities program for the New England Climate Smart Commodities Partnership project. This program represents an unprecedented opportunity to pilot scalable, carbon-saving forest management practices as part of a systems approach including forestland protection, wildland preservation and building with wood to store carbon and displace carbon-intensive materials.
The CSC Program Forester will work under the direction of NEFF’s Senior Science/Policy Fellow, work closely with the CSC Senior Forester and the rest of the project team to support on-the-ground implementation of/participation in the program. Work will touch on each of the main areas of NEFF’s CSC program including design and implementation of climate smart incentives; monitoring, verification and reporting; and support for climate smart sourcing for wood markets. All areas of work will be conducted in coordination with project partners and based on expert inputs across project elements.
