United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 12 envisions using natural resources, such as water, sustainably in both consumption and production practices. In agriculture and resource rich Saskatchewan, this goal resonates on the prairie landscape—advancing agricultural livelihoods, climate adaptation, and mitigation. Wetlands, grasslands and pasture land can act as natural sinks to reduce GHG emissions and their protection offers synergistic benefits in improving water quality. While agricultural producers have made important contributions in this regard it is important not to lose the momentum. This panel will discuss the challenges, opportunities, and will envision a path forward.
