AIC Webinar – 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 in a series of six dedicated to the future of agri-food research and innovation.
Agriculture and Climate Change: International perspectives on the role of research to reduce the sector’s carbon footprint
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.
The second moderated panel discussion of this series is scheduled for Wednesday, April 28, 2021 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm EDT.
- Dr. Zitouni Ould-Dada, Deputy Director for the Office of Climate Change, Biodiversity and Environment (Food and Agriculture Organization)
- Dr. Claudia Ringler, Deputy Division Director Environment and Production Technology Division (International Food Policy Research Institute)
- Dr. Sally Rockey, Executive Director (Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research)
