Competing Pressures: Conserving and Leveraging Ag Land in Canada
Explore the dynamic landscape of Canadian agriculture in our upcoming webinar, where we delve into the crucial role of land use in shaping the future of agriculture and food in Canada. In an era emphasizing environmental and economic sustainability and food security, understanding agricultural land use is essential. Our diverse panel will explore the interplay between policy decisions and the evolving agricultural landscape.
The webinar will include an overview of CAPI’s new Agriculture Web Mapping Application Tool which utilizes maps key agricultural attributes and agri-environmental indicators nationwide. Beyond mapping, the tool offers advanced analysis capabilities, aiding in landscape assessment, conversion risk evaluation, and the prioritization of farmland restoration. Join us for a presentation of the new tool and a thoughtful dialogue on the past, present, and future of agriculture land use in Canada.
