Decarbonizing Agriculture

Canada has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 which will require deep decarbonization in all sectors, including agriculture. Agriculture is responsible for approximately 10% of Canada's emissions. This panel explores agriculture and its emissions in Canada and specifically western Canada and what this policy and practice space might look like. Drs. Ymène Fouli, Margot Hurlbert, and Roland Kröebel search for GHG emissions estimates for Canada's major agriculture products, and review the global context for these figures. You will not want to miss this introduction to what we know about the decarbonization of agriculture and what 'carbon on your plate' might look like in the future.

Presented by:
Ymène Fouli, Environmental Soil Scientist, Independent Consultant
Roland Kröebel, Research Scientist, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (Lethbridge)
Margot Hurlbert, Canada Research Chair in Climate Change, Energy and Sustainability Policy, and Professor, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

Moderated by Kevin Fenwick, Executive-in-Residence, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy.
