Canada: Summary Report on Canada's Climate-Smart Agriculture Initiatives

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CA2023-0001

As an economic sector, agriculture contributes to just over 10 percent to Canada’s overall greenhouse gas emissions. Canada’s vision for agriculture to fight climate change is based on creating opportunities to improve carbon sequestration in agricultural lands, to stimulate the adoption of clean technologies on farms, and to support farmers in adopting greener on-farm practices to reduce GHG emissions. Canada is currently implementing climate-smart programs totaling $550 million CAD, and announced additional funding of nearly $1.2 billion CAD over the next six to ten years.
