Land Management, Agriculture, Wildlife, and Rural Communities
States manage lands for multiple uses, from agriculture to recreation and even energy production. Agriculture plays an important role in many states and territories’ economies. Governors have taken the lead on improving agricultural economies, managing wildlife, and responding to the unique challenges of rural and tribal communities.
Agriculture plays an important role in states and territories’ economies. Land-use decisions affect agriculture, housing, and infrastructure. As Governors lead on improving agricultural economies, managing wildlife, and responding to land use challenges and rural economies, the National Governors Associations’ Center for Best Practices enhances the Governors’ advisors to achieve their policy goals by providing information and sharing best practices across the states and territories.
