Looking For The Triple Win In Agriculture – Dr Pam Berry, E.C.I.

Can agriculture help to mitigate the effects of climate change while protecting biodiversity and maintaining profitability? That is what Dr Pam Berry refers to as the triple win scenario. Dr Berry is with the Environmental Change Institute at Oxford University in England. She realizes that these opportunities are rare, but she also notes that it is very important to look for them and to enhance them and foster them when we do discover them. Berry adds that in Europe, agricultural land represents 70 percent of land cover. Any shift in practice over that great an area can have a major impact on both plant and animal species. Conservation practices over that large area can help to manage the effects of volatile weather patterns. Bern Tobin spoke to Dr Berry about that rare triple win scenario and the need for finding and creating them.
