Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change Plan of Action

legislation type Executive
Passed in 2007
The Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change Plan of Action produced by the then-Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (now the Ministry for Primary Industries) is based on three pillars: adaptation, reducing emissions and enhancing sinks, and business opportunities. Work programmes operate under each pillar, overseen by a Peak Group (comprising Maori, sector and local government) and three working groups (Adaptation; Research, innovation and technology transfer; and Business opportunity). A further NZ ETS design technical advisory group provides support for NZ ETS-related policy. Three work programmes were also established to support the activities of the plan: research and innovation, technology transfer, and communication and engagement. Work includes a programme for bioenergy; demonstration of new GHG mitigation technologies and practices through demonstration farms, project activity, farm monitoring and field days; and a public education programme to enhance the knowledge and understanding of farmers, growers, foresters and their communities on climate change issues.
