The 2035 Oceania Summit was designed to enable the region’s scientific & research community, its industry leaders, agribusiness & agritech companies, farmers & growers, regulators and policy makers to meet and discuss how agrifood tech innovation and on-farm application can help address the existential threat posed by climate change.
Agriculture and the agrifood supply chain provide a significant contribution to the region’s greenhouse gas emissions. The 2035 Oceania Summit focused on the role that agrifood tech will play in supporting farmers and growers reduce emissions to net zero, as well as build more resilient growing systems to address the ongoing impact of a rapidly changing climate.
In Australia, the Climate Targets Panel says that Australia should be aiming to reach net zero emissions as early as 2035. In New Zealand, the Climate Change Commission has submitted to government its recommendations for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Across wider Oceania, climate change has had, and will continue to have, profound ramifications for the people living in the region.
The Summit featured regional and international keynote speakers, breakout panels with domain experts, an exhibition showcasing current research being undertaken across the region, as well as extensive networking opportunities.
