Agricultural Climate Solutions (ACS) is a multi-stream program that will help to develop and implement farming practices to tackle climate change. By developing, evaluating, adopting, and surveying agricultural technologies and practices, ACS is focused on sequestering carbon, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and delivering environmental benefits.
This 10-year program brings together farmers, scientists, and other sector partners to co-develop and test beneficial on-farm practices to enhance climate resiliency.
This program supports farmers in adopting beneficial management practices (BMPs) that store carbon and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
ACS is a program under the more than $4 billion Natural Climate Solutions Fund. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) is partnering with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) to develop projects that invest in natural climate solutions, including NRCan's 2 Billion Trees program and ECCC's Nature Smart Climate Solutions Fund. These solutions will contribute to meeting Canada's greenhouse gas reduction targets and provide benefits towards the well-being of all Canadians.
