25 October, The George Kerferd Hotel, Beechworth.
From the back paddock to parliament, everyone’s talking about climate change. What does it mean for agriculture? What are the risks? What can farmers do? Climate risk management is fast becoming core business. And about time, because at stake is nothing less than the future of Australian agriculture and whole communities.
The first Managing Climate Risk in Agriculture Conference 2018 drew people from as far as North Queensland, Tasmania and the WA Wheatbelt, and included presentations from 33 experts and facilitators.
More than 200 farmers, agribusiness leaders, health professionals, finance experts, scientists and others gathered in North-East Victoria. They came to get a better handle on the big picture of climate change and to talk about on-farm opportunities and challenges.
