Workshop - Agriculture in a Changing Climate Workshop

In August 2011, the Ontario Centre for Climate Impacts and Adaptation Resources (OCCIAR), together with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) developed and delivered a climate change adaptation information workshop. The goals of the workshop were to begin a discussion and raise awareness of climate change and its implications to the agricultural sector; provide examples and case studies of adaptation; provide guidance to how current agriculture programs can be adapted to climate adaption practices, and to discuss challenges and approaches for incorporating adaptation and mitigation into future programs. The workshop consisted of a series of presentations made by experts in the field of climate change adaptation and agriculture.
