Report: 'Water and Agriculture in Canada: Towards Sustainable Management of Water Resources'
Date:2/26/2013

ks and uncertainties of market conditions, competition for land and water resources, and climate change

  • improved monitoring, modelling and forecasting to facilitate adaptive management

  • the interaction between land management and water resources including assessment of beneficial management practices (BMPs), conservation agriculture, and ecosystem services approaches

  • promising farm-scale technologies that could contribute to efficient water use, reduced environmental impacts, and sound investment decisions

  • governance structures, valuation techniques, economic incentives, and knowledge transfer strategies that would help to facilitate better management decisions and uptake of sustainable practices

    "Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada asked the Council to conduct this in-depth assessment and I am confident that the Panel's work has been comprehensive and the evidence provided within this report will be of significant value and insight for policy- and decision-makers, stakeholders and the wider research community," said Elizabeth Dowdeswell, President and CEO of the Council of Canadian Academies.
