New Zealand Agricultural Climate Change Conference

New Zealand’s most important agricultural conference on climate change for two years will be held in Palmerston North on April 8-9. It will bring together scientists, government policy advisors, farmers and industry leaders to discuss the theme of meeting the challenges of climate change with respect to farming.

The New Zealand Agricultural Climate Change Conference 2019 is being organised by the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (NZAGRC), in partnership with the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and the Pastoral Greenhouse Gas Research Consortium (PGgRc).

The conference will be held at the Palmerston North Conference and Function Centre at 354 Main Street.

Sessions over the two days will cover how agriculture must adapt to climate change and what can be done to mitigate its effects globally and within New Zealand.

The programme will draw on published scientific work and the research projects being conducted by the NZAGRC-PGgRc and by MPI’s Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change Research Programme (SLMACC).

Presentations will be given by New Zealand science, industry and policy leaders.

Attendance is free but registration is required.
