National Farmers' Federation

Submission to the ARENA Technology Investment Roadmap

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the Technology Investment Roadmap consultation paper. 

There is a significant opportunity for Australian agriculture to contribute to the nation’s emissions reduction goals under the Paris Agreement. The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) has the twin objectives of promoting the long-term prosperity of Australian agriculture as well as environmental sustainability. 

Improvements in technology and investment are an important step to addressing difficult-to-abate sectors like agriculture. The NFF recognises the Technology Investment Roadmap is part of the Government’s suite of Roadmaps and strategies from different Departments to lower emissions, and notes that there needs to be better communication with industry on these processes. We understand that the Low emission technology statement will seek to bring together these currently somewhat disparate pieces of work and look forward to engaging in a review of that outcome.
