Sessions over the two days will cover how agriculture must adapt to climate change and what can be done to mitigate its effects globally and within New Zealand.

The programme will draw on published scientific work and the research projects being conducted by the NZAGRC-PGgRc and by MPI's Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change Research Programme (SLMACC).

Presentations will be given by New Zealand science, industry and policy leaders.
