Climate change impacts on land use suitability: An MPI seminar
Join us for an MPI-hosted lunchtime seminar session on Climate Change Impacts on Land Use Suitability, with Anne-Gaelle Ausseil (Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research).
Anne-Gaelle is leading the Climate Change Impacts on Land Use Suitability project, a partnership between the Deep South and Our Land and Water National Science Challenges.
Her recent research looks at how a changing climate could potentially change New Zealand’s agricultural industries. The research also explores how the primary sector can incorporate the effects of climate change into land use decision making, to make effective choices while meeting soil, water quality and economic objectives.
Neil Williams and Esther Richardson will also be present, to discuss how this research links with some of the other land-use suitability projects underway at MPI.
If you’re interested in climate change adaptation and land use change, you’re welcome to attend either in person at MPI (Wellington), or via Skype (details below).
If you have any questions, please contact Frankie Halsey at MPI: [email protected]
