Climate action in the rural sector

Wao Aotearoa

Climate action in the rural sector

From the team at Environmental Accounting Services comes an informative, open lecture on how greenhouse gas emissions are accounted for in the agriculture sector, the relevance of New Zealand’s emissions trading scheme and the current understanding of the land sector emissions levy and removals payment proposed in the latest He Waka Eke Noa report.

There are still many unanswered questions around how landowners will be asked to report on agricultural emissions. One thing we can be sure of is that the sooner we understand greenhouse gas emissions on-farm – what they are, where they are coming from, and how much we are emitting – the better positioned we will be to mitigate these emissions if required.

Who is this for? People interested in how Climate Change Policy is going to effect the the rural sector in New Zealand, particularly farmers and interested consumers.

Wao is a community non-profit set up to educate, inspire and enable New Zealand communities to move towards a regenerative future. Celebrating five years of action and education, our annual Wao Summit is a 360 degree approach to creating and fostering tangible, social and environmental change at every level. From food resilience, to changing the way we get around, to developing stronger community connection – we look at every facet of what it truly means to live in harmony with the planet. This event is one of 30 events hosted down in Wānaka, but delivered online for all to tune in.

Access this event, along with 7 other online events with the Wao Summit Online Ticket. The Wao Summit is a six day annual event held in Wānaka. Its aim is to inspire, educate and enable our transition as a community and nation to a healthy, thriving, diverse, carbon zero community.
