Join the Climate Policy Webinar

Are you frustrated by climate policy? Adapting on farm, but wondering what needs to happen beyond the farm gate?

You're not alone.

The Victorian Government will make an announcement about their 2025 and 2030 climate targets at the end of March.

An independent review conducted by Greg Combet has recommended reductions of between 45-60% across the economy by 2030. This creates some big questions.

What will this mean for agriculture? And what policies are we likely to see to help them reach these targets?

Experienced analyst Corey Watts will provide an overview of the state of climate policy, opportunities for farmers to be involved and the pathways available for change. 

Graeme Anderson  (aka @climatedogs) from AgVic will also join the webinar to provide a short Climate & Agriculture 101, along with a brief overview of the seasonal outlook.
