Consortium on regional climatology and adaptation to climate change
Agriculture, commercial fisheries and aquaculture
Home / Programs / Agriculture, commercial fisheries and aquaculture
Plant production: protection against current and emerging pests (insects, diseases, weeds); crop productivity and harvest quality
Livestock: quantity and quality of animal feed; managing the impacts of climate variations, including thermal stress on farms; diseases and infections (new and existing) affecting the productivity of animals and public health
The evolution of agricultural land occupation and the related social, economic and environmental consequences
Maintaining the quality of agricultural soils
Water availability and maintaining/improving water quality for agricultural enterprises and other users
Commercial fisheries and aquaculture
Current and emerging organisms and microorganisms in Québec likely to
harm exploited species and aquaculture
Distribution and abundance of exploited species and the forage species on which they depend
Support, through collaborative research and development, adaptation to climate change in agriculture, commercial fisheries and aquaculture in Québec.
To deepen and increase knowledge about the impacts of climate change and about the vulnerabilities of production sectors and regions
Contribute to the definition and analysis of adaptation measures and develop tools to support adaptation
Share the knowledge and tools developed through this program among other research teams and users.
