Sustainable Land Initiative

US-LT RCD partnered with multi-national software company cBrain to develop an end-to-end process to achieve sustainability goals and not just plan.  By streamlining the intake process, conservation practices and potential funding mechanisms are quickly summarized in a Resource Conservation Profile. Projects can be installed on the ground sooner with financial support available from multiple agencies and programs. The RCD can assist landowners from start to finish, speeding up the pace of sustainable land practices on the Central Coast. 

Interested in being part of the climate solution? Fill out your intake form below:

                                         Sustainable Land Initiative Intake Form 

Once RCD staff has a chance to review the form, we will reach out to schedule a  site-visit to walk through the remainder of the process. 


"We will lose the battle against climate impacts if we don’t pick up our speed of action. While ideas rooted in science are important, it is now imperative the focus move from ideas and ambitions to concrete implementation. That begins with executable public processes that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon sequestration." cBrain (2021).
