As primary industries are presented with a range of challenges in the face of a variable climate, it leaves many asking, what are the facts, what is being done, and what can we do? These are the issues that speakers from across Australia and the world will be exploring at the CRSPI Conference at the Adelaide Convention Centre on 31 March – 1 April 2020.
Climate Research for Primary Industries (CRSPI) is a joint initiative of the Rural Research and Development Corporations, the State and Northern Territory governments, the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, and the CSIRO.
The overarching goal for CRSPI is to increase industry resilience and preparedness to adapt to our changing and variable climate and mitigate emissions from the sector.
CRSPI brings 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.
This year’s Conference program will address a number of topics with the key streams including domestic and international perspectives on climate change, how the industry can and will work towards “net zero” emissions, climate adaption, an update on the latest research, development and extension projects, and a showcase of carbon innovation and technology. The program will also host producer discussions and perspectives, while exploring how concepts can be practically applied on the ground.
CRSPI is now accepting abstract submissions for the Climate and Carbon in Agriculture 2020 Conference.
Applicants may submit their research as either a poster or oral presentation. Those being submitted as an oral presentation will be considered as part of the Conference program and therefore must fall under the following themes:
- Toward Net Zero: Carbon Markets
- Toward Net Zero: Storing Carbon
- Toward Net Zero: Carbon Emissions Reduction
- Toward Net Zero: Additional Topics
- Climate Adaptation: Biosecurity
- Climate Adaptation: Farming Systems
- Climate Adaptation: Integration
- Climate Adaptation: Additional Topics
- Innovation Showcase (Adaptation, Mitigation and Integration)
Abstract text should not exceed 250 words, and must be submitted by 5:00pm AEDT Monday 20 January 2020.
