Symposium report: Adapting Aotearoa


The Deep South Challenge is releasing the symposium report on our November 2023 conference, Adapting Aotearoa: Towards a climate resilient land and food system.

This event took place in Christchurch over two days, and saw participants across the agriculture, farming and food production sectors, meet and kōrero with academics and other professionals, to explore innovative solutions for building climate resilience and a deeper understanding of the urgency for adaptation in our agricultural practices.

We were privileged during the conference to hear from veteran journalist and climate change thinker Rod Oram, who tragically died this year (2024). Sessions from the conference were recorded, and are now available. They include Rod’s key note, and our two expert panels.

Our symposium report includes a dedication to Rod Oram.
