FARMING IN A RISKY CLIMATE


Brisbane, 26–27 June 2019


CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

Farming in Australia has always been a risky proposition. The ability to manage risk well is one of the key attributes of successful farms and agribusinesses. In the absence of significant government support and a limited range of commercial risk mitigation products, risk management continues to threaten the Australian agriculture sector’s profitability and international competitiveness.

Additionally, the nature of risk is constantly changing – and the pace of that change is accelerating. The impacts of climate change are exacerbating the complexity of risk management both directly and indirectly throughout agricultural supply chains.

How will the Australian agricultural industry mitigate the significantly increased range of risks facing the sector?

Agriculture’s changing risk exposure and management options will be the focus for the Australian Farm Institute’s next mid-year conference, to be held in Brisbane on June 26–27. Save the date and check back soon for program details and registration.
