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.
This discussion paper seeks your input into the development of a proposed conservation and environment science roadmap. The roadmap will identify the areas of scientific knowledge needed by government over the next 20 years to support decision-making for conservation and environmental policy and management to achieve the most desirable future for New Zealand.
Submissions close at 5.00pm on Wednesday 7 September 2016.
