March 18, 2021 – Government of PEI: The Departments of Agriculture and Land and Environment, Energy and Climate Action are launching the Prince Edward Island Agriculture Climate Solutions Program to help Island farmers combat climate change.
The pilot, beginning April 1, 2021, will support activities in the field or on the farm that reduce greenhouse gases or that store carbon in the soil.
“Our government and our province’s agricultural sector are committed to addressing climate change,” says Bloyce Thompson, Minister of Agriculture and Land.
“We will collaborate to increase carbon in our soils, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, and to build resiliency within the agricultural sector.
“Together we will help the industry adapt at the same time as we reduce agriculture’s impact on climate change.”
