Last week, the Biden Administration released its initial report on 30 by 30, which details how the coalition of executive agencies wants to achieve President Biden’s goal of conserving 30 percent of the country's lands and waters by 2030, focusing on voluntary and locally led efforts instead of a nationally mandated program. The report, submitted to the National Climate Task Force, was developed by the U.S. Departments of the Interior, Agriculture and Commerce, and the White House Council on Environmental Quality. It lays out some key principles and policies known as the America The Beautiful Initiative and outlines eight principles that should guide the nationwide effort. These include: a pursuit of collaborative approaches; a commitment to supporting the voluntary conservation efforts of farmers, ranchers, and fishers; and honoring of Tribal sovereignty and private property rights. The Biden Administration hopes to use the 2023 Farm Bill to strengthen and expand many of the existing programs detailed in the report.
