Launched in May 2022, the Climate-Smart Agriculture and Food Systems initiative is investing $30M in cutting-edge genomic research and innovation to reduce the carbon footprint of Canada’s food production systems—building their resiliency, environmental sustainability and economic viability.
Genome Canada’s latest large-scale genomics initiative will support climate change mitigation and adaptation through strategic investments in climate-smart agriculture and food systems.
The Initiative will deploy a number of funding opportunities that will make up the portfolio. These will include Interdisciplinary Challenge Teams (ICTs), a Data Coordination Centre (DCC), and a Knowledge Mobilization and Implementation Coordination Centre (KMICC).
