May 4, 2021
The University of Calgary’s Simpson Centre for Agricultural and Food Innovation and Public Education at the School of Public Policy has announced that it will be receiving $1.17M over two years from the Government of Alberta. The funding will support the Simpson Centre’s Carbon Program, which aims to establish a baseline of carbon emissions for AB’s agriculture industry and to provide recommendations for reducing these emissions. “One of the grand challenges of the next decade is to design a sustainable trajectory of carbon emissions, globally and locally,” said Simpson Centre director Dr Guillaume Lhermie. “We need to design sound agriculture policies to achieve this goal, and a key step is to better measure where we are starting from.” UCalgary (AB)
