Program Description

This interdisciplinary social sciences and humanities research network would foster innovative research, partnership and training activities pertaining to:

  • social and socio-economic impacts of policy actions in agriculture in a net-zero future;
  • behavioural and societal influences on agricultural practices in the agricultural and food sector; and
  • approaches to scale up adoption of practices that contribute to Canada‚Äôs climate and environmental goals.

More specifically, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Network on Sustainable Agriculture in a Net-Zero Economy would be used to share knowledge among various groups to maximize learning outcomes in the social sciences and humanities in agriculture, climate and environmental research. The research network would bring together researchers and practitioners from all sectors and communities to enhance learning, expertise and knowledge sharing across Canada. It would also create workshops, conferences and other knowledge sharing events, as well as research, training activities and ongoing collaborations for those involved to develop their expertise and amplify research outcomes.
