NZ scientific ‘roadmap’

Govt lays out scientific ‘roadmap’

The roadmap is discussed at the RNZ website, linked above.

I’ve searched the document for reference to biochar… zero results but no surprise there.

I then searched on ‘soil’. There is some mention or hint at soil services in Theme 1 – Climate change and Theme 4 – Land ecosystems and processes. This looks like a great opportunity to get more focus on biochar’s potential to provide environmental services under almost all of the themes described. We should rally around this opportunity… please consider making a submission.

If you are interested in a collaborative effort, then please get in touch.
