Climate Change Mitigation in Canadian Agriculture: Integrating Recent Farm Behaviour Research into Policy
Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Organized by Debra Davidson and Funded by Weston Foundation
- Space is limited. Please contact email@example.com to register your interest in participating.
Participants will learn about the findings of an extensive social scientific research project exploring opportunities and barriers to climate change mitigation on Canadian farms. The project focused on beef and grain producers in Alberta, but the findings have broader implications for other Canadian regions and agricultural sectors. Participants will then engage in knowledge-sharing discussions intended to identify ways to integrate the findings from this and other research projects on farmer behaviour into policy, and prioritize future directions for research, and science-policy relations.
