Cardiff University and Waikato University have announced that they are co-operating on research looking at how Wales and New Zealand can learn from each other on ways to react to climate change and secure the future of agriculture in the face of increasing challenges due to climate change.
The plan is part o a wider co-operation project between the two universities that has been in place since 2021. Professor Gareth Enticott from Cardiff University and Professor Iain White from Waikato are looking at how Wales and New Zealand are facing many of the same challenges in environmental terms and are looking at how both countries can share best practice and solutions to some of the most serious problems facing both societies.
The two professors have made an appeal to anyone responsible for drafting environmental policy or is involved in the field and similar fields such as land, agriculture and controlling natural resources to contribute to online survey in order to aid their work. There is one survey for those who live and work in Wales, while there is a different survey for those responding by considering the environmental context of New Zealand. You can find more information about the project on Cardiff University’s website.
