Expanding Agriculture's Role in a Post-2012 Climate Change Regime

Publication Overview

Expanding Agriculture's Role in a Post-2012 Climate Change Regime

The aim of this paper is to examine how agriculture can be effectively included in a post-2012 regime. The paper examines issues related to the concerns of developing countries, including how to effectively engage these countries in mitigation efforts in the agricultural sector in a new regime; and issues related to the concerns of developed countries, including ensuring that accounting of agricultural GHG emissions is applied consistently across Annex I countries. The paper explores Canadian considerations and interests in the climate negotiations on agriculture and puts forward a suggested framework for Canada's approach to agriculture in post-2012 negotiations-a framework that aims to increase opportunities for acting on the potential for agricultural GHG emission reductions in developing countries.
