Two tales of a city: Carbon Neutral Adelaide and Urban Agriculture in Adelaide
In this seminar I will present results from two areas of research, both of which are focused on the greater Adelaide region.
The first area of research focuses on the goal of achieving a Carbon Neutral Adelaide. Results from a recently completed multidisciplinary project will be presented. Briefly, a technoeconomic assessment of carbon supply in South Australia’s agricultural zone will be presented. In addition to estimating carbon supply potential, co-benefits associated with carbon sequestration activities were modelled and valued.
The second research area focuses on Urban Agriculture in Adelaide. I will present from a recent assessment of ‘soil health’ in community and commercial gardens across the greater Adelaide region. I will also answer the question of whether there is enough land in the greater city of Adelaide, potentially available to produce meaningful amounts of food.
The WRI webinar series showcases the excellent science our members, affiliates and collaborators are undertaking across the agriculture, food and wine sectors. Expand your network and find new collaborators!
Everyone is welcome - webinars are generally scheduled at 11am on Thursdays, with some exceptions. Registration is required.
