Australia: filling the research gap under the carbon farming futures program

Source(s):  Australia - government

Research Strategy (July 2012 to June 2017):

This strategy highlights the need to consider links between climate change mitigation and adaptation with an aim of producing better results from research that includes projects with dual benefits. The strategy also recognizes adaptation and international research collaboration as important areas to be targeted under future funding rounds.

The objective of this research strategy is to guide the investments in climate change research for agriculture under Filling the Research Gap in order to: provide options for land managers to reduce emissions whilst simultaneously boosting their profitability and productivity; increase our understanding of the likely effects of climate change on specific industries and the benefits of mitigation and adaptation responses; develop flexible approaches to the management of land and water in agricultural systems to provide land managers with the basis to make confident resource decisions, including financial and human resources; develop technologies to contribute to resource efficiency and maintain industry viability given future climate change impacts on production; contribute to the development of a nationally and internationally agreed body of knowledge on emission reductions and adaptation for agriculture.

In fulfilling its objectives, this research strategy will encourage: collaboration and co-ordination between research projects and across industries; communication between researchers, land managers, industry and government agencies.
