Farming Futures

Farming Futures aims to create a profitable and sustainable agricultural industry driven by innovation, long-term thinking and climate change action. We play our part by communicating with farmers, land managers and their advisors and influencers to drive on-farm climate change adaptation and mitigation.   
We want farmers to be widely respected for their action on climate change while playing a central role in local, national and international food, fibre and energy production and distribution. We want to see adaptation, mitigation and resource efficiency become part of day-to-day debate amongst farmers, and a wide range of tools and techniques used to reduce on-farm greenhouse gas emissions. And we want to see farmers and land managers taking a leading role in community climate change action through their role in local food production, energy generation, water management and resource conservation.
