Synopsis: Canadian farming has evolved under the influence of climate and weather -- a process that continues with climate change. In farming systems across the country, effective risk management is necessary to deal with drought, flooding, and extreme weather, and to adapt to altered climate and weather conditions. Unfortunately, climate-change risks and opportunities are not always well understood among researchers and policy-makers in the Canadian agri-food sector. This book addresses that gap.

Farming in a Changing Climate provides a wide-ranging synopsis of what climate change means for Canadian agriculture, explores different approaches to the topic, and presents examples of current research. It covers all agricultural regions and a wide variety of commodity production and farming systems. Comments from agricultural producers and policy-makers add a practical component to the book and emphasize the value of the applied research.

This comprehensive survey synthesizes twenty years of research on climate change and Canadian agriculture. The book will be of interest to scholars in environmental studies, geography, and sociology; policy analysts and policy-makers; and representatives of the agri-food industry.

About the Author: Ellen Wall is a research scientist in environmental sciences; Barry Smit is a professor of geography and Canada Research Chair in Global Environmental Change; and Johanna Wandel is a postdoctoral research associate with the Department of Geography --all at the University of Guelph. The authors/editors are also members of the Advisory Committee for C-CIARN Agriculture (Canadian Climate Impacts and Adaptation Network for Agriculture).
