Innovative Land Management
Alberta Land Institute (ALI) leverages the multi-disciplinary research capacity of academic institutions and other organizations to develop, design, evaluate and support the implementation of innovative land-use policy options. ALI supports more informed land-use decisions by providing policy makers and land-users information that considers environmental, economic and social objectives as well as their impacts and potential trade-offs on the land base.
Global population is expected to grow to over nine billion by 2050, and Alberta's population is projected to double over the same period. This rapid growth and the drive to maintain or improve standard of living increases the demand for resources and has a profound impact on land-use. Climate change, food security, loss of agricultural land, habitat loss, growing water scarcity, energy and other resource extraction are all contributing factors to the increasing demands being made on the limited land base around the world.
