The Simpson Centre Carbon Program
The Simpson Centre received $1.17 million in funding from the Government of Alberta for the Simpson Centre’s Carbon Program. The program aims first to understand where Alberta’s agriculture industry baseline is for carbon emissions from various agriculture products and then develop policy recommendations to reduce those emissions.
Counteracting climate change through ecosystem restoration
Ecosystem restoration means preventing, halting and reversing this damage, shifting from exploiting nature to healing it. Only with healthy ecosystems can we enhance people’s livelihoods, counteract climate change and stop the collapse of biodiversity. Two UCalgary professors, alongside their students, are researching different ways to protect the natural world through ecosystem restoration.
