Urban and Rural Farms: Marrying Sustainability and Efficiency

Watch Now

Alberta is a major agriculture producer, exporting more than half of what it produces. With that production comes GHG emissions – but where are they actually generated? As farmers continually adapt to emissions regulations, there are tradeoffs to be made between sustainability and efficiency. Are there lessons to be learned from small scale, organic and urban farms that can help Canadian producers as they navigate the approach they take on their farms?

Join The School of Public Policy for this discussion on the complex nature of the tradeoffs facing our ag industry.
