Co-designing the Governance of Natural Climate Solutions in Canada’s Agriculture Sector

The project will focus on setting out the enabling conditions for nature-based climate solutions. Within this objective, the team will develop a portfolio of opportunities for — and a discussion of the implications of — (i) new policy tools and modifications to existing laws and regulations and (ii) market-based approaches, all to enable and accelerate adoption of practices that show promise to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sequester carbon in Canada’s agriculture sector. This is an important step to take in advancing the agriculture sector’s role as a solutions provider in climate change mitigation. This research will contribute to a wider initiative in Canada to identify, enhance, and accelerate natural environments such as croplands, grasslands, forests, wetlands, and peatlands capacity to contribute to cost-effective solutions to climate change mitigation, playing a key role in meeting the Paris Climate Agreement and keeping global warming below 2°C.
