Robert McLean/Lucinda Corrigan
Farmers and others gather in Beechworth to consider climate risk in agriculture.
Show Notes

Some 230 people were at Beechworth's George Kerford Hotel for the "Managing Climate Risk in Agriculture"  conference staged by the Farmers for Climate Acton (FCA) late in October. An impressive array of speakers covered most every aspect of farming in a changing climate from physical risks through to the emotional and mental health of farmers.
Most of the presentations would have been sufficient has they been the entire substance of the conference to leave the audience in deep thought, but it was that of MinterEllison corporate lawyer and climate change expert specializing in climate risk, Sarah Barker, who set many to thinking and appeared to empower people.
