Peter Hayman

The final presentation was given by Dr Peter Hayman, who leads SARDI’s Climate Applications Unit which is highly regarded as a pioneer in climate applications science and leading-edge training and marketing of climate applications tools.  Peter and his team work closely with decision makers in grains, viticulture and natural resource management to help them assess and manage climate risk in agricultural systems. Peter’s presentation ‘Applying Techniques for Climate Change in Agriculture to the Sea’, shared insights from this dynamic field, including dealing with uncertainty, the difficulties in identifying key vulnerabilities and impacts and the dangers of over-estimating or under-estimating future adaptive capacity. Peter said there was much to be learned from how we are already managing current climate variability for future change, particularly within the wine and farmland industries.
