Presentation:  Sustainable agriculture as adaptation to climate change

One of the fundamental principles of adaptation to climate change is building resilient communities and economies by ensuring the health and integrity of the ecosystems that are the basis of our food and water security. Most of the impact of climate change in western Canada will be caused by shifts in ecosystems and the availability of water. The resilience of agricultural ecosystems, to withstand climate extremes and change, is ensured through the proper management of water, soil and pasture. These best practices and agricultural policies represent both adaptation to climate change and the foundation of sustainable agriculture.
