Farming and climate changeClimate change
Ecosystems Consultants recently contributed to Evaluating Intensification Trajectories in the Context of Climate Change, a project to ensure that New Zealand pastoral farmers can capture benefits from and adapt to potential constraints imposed by climate change.
The project’s vision was for farmers to maintain a market advantage through efficient production of high quality food and fibre grown within intensive farming systems by following different types and more finely tuned intensification strategies that incorporate economic, ecological and social dimensions. Our pastoral farmers and agricultural policy makers would then be better prepared for shocks and drivers in world food and fibre markets triggered by climate change.
