Alberta Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture (AESA) Program
- Understanding nature/biodiversity values
- Manure management
- Livestock watering
- Wildlife habitat conservation
Alberta’s agriculture production and processing industry have made important progress in environmental stewardship over the last decade. Processors, farmers and ranchers have initiated environmentally sustainable projects to improve water and soil quality through Previous Canada-Alberta Environmental Initiatives. Industry and environmental organization in Alberta agree there is a need to continue, improve and expand these efforts to protect Alberta’s environment.
The AESA Program and AESA Council grew out of stakeholder consultations in the winter of 1995/96. Those consultations showed the need for targeted environmental programming in agricultural production and processing.
