Nine years of agri-environmental policy milestones, progress and partnerships are chronicled in a new report produced by the Agriculture and Food Council of Alberta’s Environmental Policy Initiatives Project (EPIP).
The report gives a perspective of Alberta’s agri-environmental policy status of accomplishments, goals and gaps, and it also outlines possible next steps.
“This report is a culmination of nine years of experience and intensive activity. We have strived to identify gaps and present options for land use and stewardship in Alberta,” says EPIP chair Kenton Ziegler. “The Agriculture and Food Council is proud of the contributions of all who have been involved throughout the years in important, visionary and timely initiatives that have led to better policy decisions. Due to limited resources, Council will be concluding its Environmental Policy Initiative.”
The report, “Agri-Environmental Perspectives: Land Use and Stewardship Policy in Alberta’s Agri-Food,” aims to offer observations on priorities and gaps for consideration by industry and government. The full report is available online at www.agfoodcouncil.com
