Certainly Canada's ag sector has an important role to play in the fight against climate change. Through initiatives like the Economics and Environmental Policy Research Network, our government is supporting research into policies and programs that accelerate sustainable practices, the adoption of technology and clean innovation in agricultural practices in the agri-food sector.
As you know, through programs like the agricultural greenhouse gases program, we are supporting researchers at the University of Guelph in various projects that will help farmers reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change. We are also, as I said before, extremely interested in how we can utilize soils going forward as a carbon sink to help with sequestration and to allow us to take more carbon out of the atmosphere. By working across government and with the agricultural community, we can help to ensure that we are identifying and implementing solutions that will allow the agricultural sector to lead in these important areas.
