Alberta’s Agricultural Lands: A Policy Toolbox for Moving from Conversion to Conservation

February 16, 2021 - 11:00am

From the ELC website:

In anticipation of our forthcoming publication Alberta’s Agricultural Lands: A Policy Toolbox for Moving from Conversion to Conservation, the ELC will be presenting a webinar highlighting the findings in that publication.  Alberta’s current approach is not working to conserve high value agricultural lands.  Changes are needed to counteract the drivers of agricultural land conversion and to foster effective incentives and support for maintaining the viability of agriculture on the land base.

This forthcoming publication and webinar build upon the work started in our publication Agricultural Lands Law and Policy in Alberta which provided a primer on the laws and policies that apply to Alberta’s agricultural lands and canvassed existing legal tools for conservation of those lands.

When you sign up for the upcoming webinar, the report will be sent to you on publication.
