AIC’s Webinar Series on Agri-Food Research and Innovation, Panel Discussion #2

Agriculture and Climate Change: International perspectives on the role of research to reduce the sector’s carbon footprint 

 We invite you to join us for the second webinar scheduled on 

Wednesday, April 28th
8:30am -10 am PST   (11:30 am – 1:00 pm EDT.)

 In 2014, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimated that agriculture, forestry and other land uses contributed to 24% of global greenhouse gas emissions. 
Around the world, the growing push to move toward a net-zero economy and reverse the effects of climate change will result in Canada’s agriculture sector having to innovate to reduce its carbon footprint while remaining productive and competitive. 

 In this webinar, international experts will provide a fresh perspective on the role of research to achieve these goals. 
Moderated by AIC’s CEO, the panel discussion will help identify how research can contribute to solving this pressing challenge.
