The Potential for Carbon Dioxide Equivalent Sequestration in Agro-Manitoba

As the province of Manitoba moves toward a new climate policy paradigm, the land use-based practices in private, seeded lands within Agro-Manitoba present an opportunity to sequester or reduce net emissions.

To this end, the International Institute for Sustainable Development and the Prairie Climate Centre conducted a high-level quantitative analysis of the sequestration potential of land use practices in Agro-Manitoba that are additional to business as usual. The land use practices that were considered in this study include those related to wetlands, forestry, riparian buffers, minimum tillage, perennials and cover crops.
