NZARES Conference 2013: 29-30 August
This year our conference will be held at Lincoln University in Canterbury with the theme: “On-farm impacts of environmental policy”.
Hon David Caygill, ECan Commissioner, is one of our keynote speakers and will talk about Regional Governance and what it means in practical terms for land managers. Expect more news about our plenary programme very soon.
NZARES would like to thank Dairy NZ for their gold sponsorship for the conference.
Striking the right balance between social, economic and environmental outcomes is critical. To that end, we are pleased to be collaborating with the Australasia Pacific
Extension Network to hold back-to-back conferences and a joint field trip.
APEN Conference 2013: 26-28 August
The APEN event is called, “Transformational Change: Chosen or Unchosen” and will include themes such as adaptive management, resilience, and collective action.

A chance to discuss all these issues out in the field! The field trip will focus on irrigation, productivity and environmental stewardship and will provide real world examples to ground our discussions at the conference.
Dates and details for the field trip will be advised shortly.
