Dr. Adam Chambers is a Scientist at USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). He leads Environmental Markets activities under NRCS’s Energy and Environmental Markets Team. Adam’s work focuses on leveraging markets that value ecosystem services, building strategic partnerships, and getting ‘more conservation on the ground’. His environmental markets and conservation finance work is supported by NRCS Farm Bill programs that aim to increase the amount of voluntary conservation practices that are implemented on working agricultural lands in the United States.
Over the past two decades Dr. Chambers’ project work has focused on the applied sciences and reducing atmospheric pollutants (air pollutants and greenhouse gases). He is currently working to implement conservation practices on managed agricultural lands that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance carbon sequestration in soils, providing an emerging carbon market opportunity for US landowners and agricultural producers.
Adam received his Doctorate from the Technical University of Vienna (Austria), Master of Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and his B.Sc. from Murray State University in Kentucky.
