The Role of Natural Climate Solutions for British Columbia Agriculture

July 27, 2021 - 1:00pm(PDT/PST)
Fraser Valley-District 2
PD hours: 

Join the Fraser Valley Branch for  an online presentation at 1PM on Tuesday, July 27th on The Role of Natural Climate Solutions for British Columbia Agriculture presented by Dr. Sean Smukler.

Natural climate solutions (NCS) have been suggested to be readily deployable management practices that can contribute to Canada’s goals for emission reductions.  Over the last 9 years the Sustainable Agricultural Landscapes Laboratory has been engaged in researching the potential of NCS for British Columbia Agriculture.  This research includes analyses on the impacts of vegetative buffers, cover crops, improved nutrient management and set-asides on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration from the field to the landscape scale.   In this talk, Dr. Smukler share results from this research and discuss potential synergies and trade-offs that NCS may have with other agricultural land management objectives.   

Sean Smukler is an Associate Professor in Applied Biology & Soil Science and the Chair of Agriculture and the Environment for the Faculty of Land and Food Systems at the University of British Columbia. His research currently focuses on helping farmers adapt to climate change and improve the sustainability of their farming practices specifically as they relate to soils. Sean received a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of California, Davis where he also did his undergraduate studies.  He holds an MSc. in Forest Soils from the University of Washington, Seattle.
