A Proactive Scientific Research Agenda
The Simpson Centre’s aim is to create, curate, and disseminate research that informs public and stakeholder dialogue about agriculture and agri-food in Canada. To that end, we have established research topics that support public conversations, decision-making and future-focused policymaking.
Using scientific research and forecasting, the Centre is addressing the strategic needs of Canadian food security, while paying attention to the uncertain risks of global supply chains, extreme weather events, availability of water, inputs and labour, in the perspective of long-term planning and adaptive policymaking. The role of scientific experts in moderating discussions about agriculture is a key ingredient in achieving a sustainable and resilient food system.
