How is New Zealand's agricultural GHG research funded?
Agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation research funding comes from multiple sources. The growing appreciation of the need to tackle climate change, and the diversity of the challenges that agricultural GHGs present, means there are a range of different funding entry points from fundamental science through to applied research and commercial production. Different funders have different interests and are looking for specific solutions to issues facing their farm, organisation, industry or government ministry.
Given the variety of interests and approaches, there are several different funding streams that seek to service those different needs. As a result, the organisation and funding of agricultural GHG mitigation research in New Zealand can appear complex.
We have created a guide to the system and the way the funds work in partnership to grow New Zealand’s understanding and global contribution to real solutions to tackle climate change.
