Climate Research Strategy for Primary Industries (CRSPI) is bringing together people from across a wide range of commodity sectors, primary producers, governments, research investors and researchers to arm attendees with the latest climate related information and strategies for the agricultural sector.
Australian and international perspectives will be shared at this National event which is being held at the Adelaide Convention Centre on 31 March to 1 April 2020.
Conference host, the Climate Research Strategy for Primary Industries (CRSPI), is inviting members of the agriculture and natural resource management sectors to attend with registrations now open.
During the two-day conference, a mix of high profile speakers including innovative primary producers will provide new insights into adapting to a changing climate and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. Among them will be Dr Richard Denniss, Chief Economist and former Executive Director of The Australia Institute; Professor Mark Howden, Director of the Climate Change Institute at the Australian National University and a Vice Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); John Connor, CEO of The Carbon Market Institute; and Hugh Killen, CEO of AACo.
Speakers from across Australia and the world will be exploring the latest research on the relationship between a variable climate and primary industry:
- Domestic and international perspectives on climate change
- How the industry can and will work towards ‘net zero’ emissions
- Climate adaptation for agriculture
- A showcase of carbon innovation and technology
- An update on the latest CRSPI research, development and extension projects.
The program will also host producer discussions and perspectives, while exploring how concepts can be practically applied on the ground.
NSW DPI Director of Climate R&D and CRSPI Chair, Dr Jason Crean said that the conference will bring together a cross section of commodity sectors, primary producers, government, investors, non-government organisations and researchers to discuss the latest climate and carbon related information and strategies.
“By hearing from experts in science and practice, including participating in interactive panel discussions, participants will learn how to better equip themselves and the industry, for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. We will be showcasing what is already being done by producers, some of the tools already available for businesses to use to adapt to climate change and reduce emissions, and to share some new ideas and potential solutions,” Dr Crean said.
“Producers, researchers, policy makers, service providers and students all have an interest in being part of the solution to climate change for our industry, and we strongly encourage anyone involved in the sector to register and be part of this significant conference.”
