Commission on Food, Environment & Renewable Resources (CFERR)

The Commission on Food, Environment, and Renewable Resources focuses on broad cross-cutting issues related to agriculture, food, fiber, human sciences, natural resources (ecology, fish and wildlife, forestry, mineral resources and water resources), oceans, atmosphere, climate and veterinary medicine in the functional areas of research, extension and teaching.  The commission seeks to formulate and implement an integrated federal-relations program and formulate Congressional budget recommendations in these high-priority areas of national concern, as well as to forge partnerships with government agencies whose mission areas are congruent with the commission’s activities.
