Living Laboratories Initiative: International engagement and partnerships

While implementing the Living Laboratories Initiative at home, Canada is also a leader in the development and implementation of living labs internationally. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada presented the idea of "agroecosystem living labs" during the May 2018 G20 Meeting of Agricultural Chief Scientists in Argentina.

As a follow-up, Canada and the United States co-led a working group to exchange views of the current use of the approach, identify common challenges and best practices, and report their findings at the April 2019 G20 Meeting of Agricultural Chief Scientists in Tokyo, Japan. The working group was comprised of eleven countries (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States) as well as the European Commission.

Other efforts to promote and collaborate on the agroecosystem living labs approach include:
