Over the last four years, scientists from Crown Research Institutes researchers have been working on understanding what a changing climate means on farm and in the forest. Practical solutions to the expected changes in the production systems were also modelled. The key findings are summarised in a short report, the “Impacts of Climate Change on Land based Sectors and Adaptation Options”, which is now available from MPI.
A number of Environmental Fact Sheets are being published during 2016. The first two published and available for download are on debris flows and water quality. Further fact sheets to be published this year include pollen, ecocsystem services, biodiversity in planted forests and forest soils
