Farmers for Climate Action has launched a new report outlining the driving need for a national plan for climate change and agriculture and key policies that can support farmers to cut their emissions and increase farm productivity.
Based on our engagement with more than 600 farmers, agriculture industry and more, we have announced our plan for a national approach to climate change and agriculture.
Australian farmers are on the front lines of climate change, facing more severe and frequent drought, heatwaves, fires and floods. At the same time, the shift to a low-emissions world also presents farmers and rural communities with significant opportunities.
An effective national policy on climate change and agriculture will allow us to ensure Australian farmers are prepared to deal with the changing climate and able to seize the economic opportunities that come from moving to a low carbon economy.
