UQAM receives $8.67M grant from QC to study carbon sequestration


The Université du Québec à Montreal has received an $8.67M grant over three years from the Government of Québec to carry out research on wetlands in southern Québec. The funds will be used to assess how these environments could potentially contribute toward climate change mitigation. UQAM Geography Professor Michelle Garneau will lead the research program. Garneau said that she expects the results of this work to improve land use planning and conservation practices to ensure the well-being of current and future generations.
