ALC Policy - Criteria for Agricultural Capability AssessmentsThis policy is intended to provide information for professional agrologists submitting agricultural capability assessment reports as part of an exclusion, subdivision, non-farm use application, or as required through a compliance and enforcement action to ensure that they: 1) are providing sufficient information and evidence to support their assessment; 2) are qualified to complete this work, and 3) perform their work on the Reports as per the Code of Ethics of the British Columbia Institute of Agrologists. The submission of a report as part of an application is optional; however, one is recommended if the agricultural capability is the primary reason for the application. PDF

Recarbonization of Global Soils:  A Tool to Support the Implementation of the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture -  The implementation of proven Soil Organic Carbon (SOC)-centred Sustainable Soil Management (SSM) practices for maintaining carbon-rich soils (peatlands, black soils, permafrost, etc.) and for sequestering more carbon in soils with such potential (croplands and degraded soils), would address the challenge of compensating global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Soil organic carbon sequestration has been shown to hold the largest sink potential in terrestrial ecosystems and agroecosystems.
