Abstract: In February 2000 the Canadian Agri-Food Research Council (CARC) accepted an invitation from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to deliver the Climate Change Funding Initiative in Agriculture (CCFIA). At that time, climate change research was still a relatively new area, particularly for agriculture. In the four years since, research activities in all areas have grown exponentially, with added urgency given as a result of Canada’s commitment to the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Through its Canadian Adaptation and Rural Development (CARD) II program, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada provided funding of $4 million over four years to CARC for the CCFIA. The funding was used to support development of human resources, for research projects, and for communications activities. CARC’s Canada Committees initiated activities to coordinate climate change activities in Canadian agriculture, including the development of three major position papers, as well as a process to identify research and development needs that are not being currently addressed or that require increased attention. This report provides summaries of the individual research projects of this program.
