The Climate Crisis and Agriculture: The Global View and On-Farm Responses

How will climate change affect our farms? How might it affect government policies? How can we build resilience? How can we reduce emissions? What can I do on my farm?

Janet Ranganathan, Vice President for Research, Data, and Innovation at the World Resources Institute will lay out the big-picture in terms of global and North American climate impacts and potential agricultural emission-reduction measures. Alberta farmer Takota Coen will give a virtual tour of his farm and his family’s work to build resilience and a sustainable farming system that has reduced emissions and enriched soils . NFU Director of Climate Crisis Policy and Action Darrin Qualman will introduce the speakers and provide an overview of NFU policy work on emissions reduction and climate adaptation. All webinar participants can engage in discussions regarding the intersection of climate impacts, on-farm responses, and policy solutions.
