In the coming decades, climate change is expected to bring profound changes to agriculture in Manitoba.
To help farmers address this challenge, Keystone Agricultural Producers created the Manitoba Agricultural Climate Initiative to:
- Assess how climate change is likely to change production conditions in Manitoba;
- Understand Manitoba farmers’ priorities for managing these changes;
- Develop ideas on how government can support farmers’ efforts to address these priorities — to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
KAP has completed the final report which presents the findings on these three points. The report is intended to be read by Manitoba farmers, to support their efforts to develop official KAP policies through KAP’s democratic process. It is also intended to be read by government officials, environmental organizations and the general public to offer an agricultural perspective on the solutions to climate change.
