Farmers, growers and all those who care for our land want to help build a resilient, healthy and thriving agri-food and fibre system. The role of Our Land and Water’s research is to connect and work with land stewards, iwi and organisations to design practical new options, incentives and pathways towards this future, and provide confidence that decisions on land-use change and management will lead to improvement in te Taiao.
This webinar discusses what our future landscapes can look like when scientists, farmers, growers, iwi, eaters and businesses work together to respond pragmatically and effectively to environmental degradation. Speakers:
Jenny Webster-Brown, director of Our Land and Water, will share Our Land and Water’s vision, how we will know we are on the path to success, and new research helping us realise this change
Selai Letica, kairangahau at Our Land and Water, will discuss how the concept of te Taiao can help us all understand – and make – the whole-system transformation required.
Robyn Dynes, leader of Land Use Opportunities: Whitiwhiti Ora programme (also strategy leader and senior scientist at AgResearch), will introduce this major new research programme aiming to identify a much greater range of suitable land opportunities and a greater diversity of benefits for New Zealand.
