Title: Climate Change Funding Initiative in Agriculture (CCFIA) - Activities report 2000 - 2001
Author: Canadian Agri-Food Research Council, Climate Change Funding Initiative in Agriculture Committee
Abstract: In February 2000 the federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada announced funding of $4 million over 4 years from the Canadian Adaptation and Rural Development II (CARD II)program for a Climate Change Funding Initiative in Agriculture (CCFIA). The Canadian Agri-Food Research Council (CARC) is responsible for delivering the CCFIA for the AAFC Environment Bureau, with the following four goals: 1. Increased Canadian human resource research capacity and expertise in climate change issues in agriculture. 2. Research on knowledge gaps in agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. 3. Development of industry best practices and technology to reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon sequestration potential of agricultural soils. 4. Enhanced awareness and improved communication on climate change. This report documents the first steps taken towards meeting each of these goals.
