ONE1435/TC News Climate change challenge on radar LOOKING FORWARD: Petra Doust is helping farmers plan ahead. Growers need more information on the big picture so that they are better prepared for the carbon policies of the future.' THE Coal River Valley Products As- sociation is forging ahead with a program of workshops to help farmers prepare for climate change. The association has received a $230,000 federal grant to hold nine workshops. Farms in the fertile district include broadacre, perennial horticulture and viticulture properties. Workshop coordinator and Serv-Ag project officer Petra Doust said she had conducted an audit of ten farms and asked farmers what they knew about climate change. Ms Doust said climate change might be ''slow'' but it was coming. ''A lot of growers are not proactive,'' she said. ''This is a proactive project that will build resilience and the ability to adapt. ''We want to prepare farmers in the Coal River Valley. ''The workshops are designed to give them knowledge and empower them to cope with the changes that are com- ing.'' The first workshop was held last month and it focused on understanding climate change and the weather. The second workshop will be held next week and it will look at managing carbon. '' Understanding carbon and carbon trading was identified as a future training need,'' Ms Doust said. ''Growers need more information on the big picture so that they are better prepared for the carbon policies of the future.'' The second workshop will be led by climate change expert Karlie Tucker. Farmers will explore the limitations and opportunities of carbon policy and learn about carbon concepts including emissions, offsets and sequestration. Carbon footprint analysis and car- bon trading will also be high on the agenda. Ms Doust said future accreditation requirements and labelling trends would be discussed using case studies from around the world. The third workshop will be held on Wednesday May 11 at the Hobart Airport Hotel from 1.15pm to 4.30pm. For more information phone 0417 002 593.
