Environment minister Scott Moe will represent Saskatchewan at the United Nations climate change conference in Morocco November 14th to 18th.
Moe will take part in sessions on agriculture carbon offsets and carbon capture and storage. He will advance the themes of climate mitigation, adaptation and technology.
He says the conference will enable Saskatchewan to show how zero tillage, which has transformed our agricultural lands into tremendous carbon sinks, absorbing millions of tons of carbon every year.
He will also promote carbon capture and storage technology and move to renewable energy generation.
Moe will also meet with Moroccan pulse importers and a durum wheat processor.
Morocco is a key market for these Saskatchewan crops, with more than 190 million dollars worth of durum and 5 million dollars in lentils exported last year.
