Join us in Palmerston North for a two-day conference focused on how policy and science are supporting action on agriculture and climate change.

Day 1: Policy
The focus for the first day of the conference will be on policy where we’ll hear the latest from Government and primary sector leaders on their joint plan to develop practical and cost-effective ways to measure and price emissions at the farm level by 2025. We’ll also receive updates on the Government’s targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the role of forestry, adaptation, and the international landscape. 

Day 2: Science
The focus for the second day is understanding how the science can support action on the ground. Leading farmers will share their perspectives on currently available technologies and management practices, and we’ll get an update on the work being done to help farmers estimate their on-farm emissions. We’ll hear about progress being made with future technologies for reducing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. We’ll also get a look at the new science plan for investment in research in this area, led by the NZAGRC and the PGgRC.


Industry leaders, farmers and rural professionals, people who work in science, and policy makers who would like to better understand how New Zealand is addressing the challenges of agriculture and climate change.
Attendance is free, but registration is required.
