Strategic Framework for Accelerating Sustainable Agriculture in Canada: Recommendations for Philanthropy

September, 2024
By Peter Andrée, Beth Hunter, James Meadowcroft

Commissioned by a small group of Canadian philanthropic foundations interested in strengthening the focus and alignment of their work around agriculture and organized by the Transition Accelerator, this project was designed to answer the following question: What strategic opportunities exist today for philanthropic foundations and their agriculture-focused partners and grantees to accelerate the shift towards sustainable agriculture in Canada?

The analysis presented here is based on a desk-based survey of literature, more than 50 interviews with a wide range of experts and stakeholders, six focus groups (on payment for environmental services, beef, dairy, organics, novel proteins, and sustainable diets), and a two-day strategy workshop. The report identifies strategic opportunities for philanthropy to contribute to advancing more sustainable agricultural systems in Canada.
