An Integrated Economic and Hydrologic Modelling System for Evaluating Cost Effectiveness of Agricultural Conservation Programs

Wanhong YangPresented by Dr. Wanhong Yang

Professor, Department of Geography

University of Guelph

Abstract

Growing concerns about the adverse environmental effects of agriculture have led to the establishment of public-funded land conservation programs for improving water quantity and quality. These programs need decision support on allocating conservation investments and also evaluating program performance. In this seminar I will introduce the development and application of an integrated economic and hydrologic modelling system for evaluating cost effectiveness of agricultural conservation practices at a watershed scale. I will also take this opportunity to discuss a vision on science support for improving cost effectiveness of agricultural conservation programs.
