Prairie Watersheds Climate Program

The Manitoba Association of Watersheds (MAW) is the lead organization managing the Prairie Watersheds Climate Program (PWCP) - an up-to $40 million AAFC OFCAF project in Manitoba and Saskatchewan from February 7, 2022 – June 30, 2024.

  • PWCP is delivered by Manitoba’s Watershed Districts and the Saskatchewan Association of Watersheds (SAW).
  • The project is overseen by an advisory committee of stakeholders led by MAW.

The Prairie Watersheds Climate Program (PWCP) works with producers to increase the implementation of select Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs) on farms in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The BMPs eligible under the PWCP focus on three categories:

  1. Rotational Grazing
  2. Nitrogen Management
  3. Cover Cropping
