“The Mississippi River Basin is in a unique position to lead climate performance because our basin produces 40 percent of the world’s agricultural commodities, is the largest navigable basin on Earth, and 1 in every 12 people world-wide consume commodities produced by the Mississippi River Basin,” said Mayor Simmons.
