Targets for sustainable and resilient agriculture (TSARA) is a European research programme investigating land uses and changes to land uses, and their potential to support progress toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals. AgResearch is participating in the TSARA programme by using New Zealand as a non-European case study for additional modelling. This report represents the first phase of AgResearch’s collaboration in TSARA. It describes the data required to parameterise the existing Rothamsted Research/TSARA model for New Zealand conditions, and evaluates the feasibility of providing sufficient data to model New Zealand pathways successfully. This report contains a list of potential indicators that could be used to measure progress towards SDG 2: Zero Hunger (targets 2.4 and 2.5).
