Soil health policy workshop 2019
Wednesday 15 May 2019
This soil health policy workshop focused on regional and central government policy needs around soil (and ecosystem) health and how both the Mātauranga Māori and traditional science world views could inform policy needs.
Representatives from regional and central Governement, science organisations and the agricultural sector attended the workshop and provided a range of perspectives on soil health policy. An illustrated poster summarising the findings of the workshop has been created and is presented here along with the presentations given at the workshop. Knowledge from the workshop will contribute to the development of an integrated soil health framework that incorporates cultural value systems and Mātauranga Māori, new scientific knowledge and policy needs for soil health.
