The Canadian government says it is giving its top economic advisors a second look at the value of the country’s farmland and forests, with an eye to changing their thinking on land use and carbon emissions.
“As a country we are committed to the idea that land is a fundamental and shared resource that must be shared with all,” Environment Minister Shannon Phillips said in a statement.
The move comes as the Canadian government looks to find ways to get its land back to its original size in the face of climate change. “
These new reports will inform the Government’s land use policy, which will help guide our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”
The move comes as the Canadian government looks to find ways to get its land back to its original size in the face of climate change.
The country has a total of about 10.8 million hectares of land under the jurisdiction of the provincial and territorial governments, according to data from the federal government.
The government has said it plans to return some of that land to some form of public ownership within the next decade.
Phillips says the government is also working to ensure that carbon emissions from farming and forestry are not negatively impacted by new land use policies.
“The Government is committed to building a sustainable future for the people of Canada and the environment,” she said.
The new reports, to be released by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Environment Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, will review land value and carbon footprints for all Canadian land.
The reports will also look at changes in land use over time.
“Land use has evolved in Canada over the last 50 years,” said Anne-Marie Deschamps, an economist at the University of British Columbia who will work on the new reports.
“Our focus is on the changes in the value that we see as we are using the land. “
So the impacts of changes in agricultural land use on carbon emissions are a key part of our consideration of land use.” “

The new studies will examine the value and the carbon footprints of land in areas across Canada, and look at how climate change has changed the landscape of the landscape.
They will also take a look at carbon emissions for each area over the next five years, the report says.
The Government of Canada has said that it wants to increase the amount of land the country can manage and is looking at more ways to do that.
“Canada’s land uses have evolved since 1950 and are more efficient at managing resources and managing environmental impact,” Phillips said.
“However, it is also important to recognize that Canada has a long way to go before we can expect to meet our ambitious 2030 goal of achieving a sustainable, resilient, and resilient land use system.”
