WEBINAR - Groundwater Degradation in New Zealand; a Case Study of Failures Associated with Environmental Protection Canterbury

This webinar will explore the uncontrolled intensification on land and water use in Canterbury and how this has led to a groundwater disaster.

The lessons are clear, allowing the externalities of the dairy industry to be absorbed by wider society has led to a trap for farmers and the rest of society.

The failures were more about a lack of implementation rather than legislation, meaning that all the legislative change underway is likely to be ineffectual if there is no change in the requirement to enforce.

The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session. We will send a unique access link to registrants on the morning of the event.

If you have any issues at all during the registration process, please reach out to events@landandgroundwater.com for assistance.

If you cannot attend on the day, you can still get the benefit, as the session will be recorded and available to view later.
