The NSW Nationals acknowledge our climate is changing, resulting in more extreme and variable weather patterns.
We know that it is important to minimise our impact on the environment where possible, but there is also important work that can be done on a local scale, such as investing in regional solar projects and finding ways to capture carbon in the soil.
The NSW Nationals want to see common-sense solutions to these problems, such as developing soil management practises to protect regional areas from the impacts of climate change, and enable rural and regional communities and landholders to take advantage of the improved economic opportunities they could provide.
The NSW Nationals are committed to:
- Helping communities and businesses adapt to climate change and manage any potential economic and social costs.
- Aiming to find ways to mitigate the effects of climate change.
- Enabling communities and businesses to capture any opportunities which may arise because of climate change.
