Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada program launched to help mitigate climate change
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
(AAFC) has launched Agricultural Climate Solutions (ACS), a new 10-year, $185 million program to help mitigate climate change.
ACS will establish a Canada-wide network of regional collaborations based on the living lab approach
bringing together farmers, scientists, and other sectoral stakeholders. Together, they will develop and share management practices that best store carbon and mitigate climate change. This work will also produce important environmental co-benefits, including protecting biodiversity, increasing water and soil quality, while improving farmers’ bottom lines.
Each hub will centre around real farms where farmers and researchers can co-develop the best practices, including cover crops, intercropping, conversion of marginal land to permanent cover, shelterbelts, nutrient management, and inclusion of pulses in rotations.
AAFC is hosting three virtual ACS information sessions. Please use the following links to register for a session:
