农业部长达米安·奥康纳(HonDamien O’Connor)表示,新西兰在第一产业可持续性发展方面处于国际领先地位,我们今年向来自20个发展中国家的57位早期农业排放科学家发放奖学金,正是体现了这一点。

部长宣布了奖学金,并表示第四轮气候,粮食和农业全球研究联盟发展奖学金计划(CLIFF-GRADS)收到了数百份申请,而发放总数也是上一轮奖学金的近两倍。

“全球农业温室气体研究联盟(GRA)成员国和东道国研究机构的兴趣日益增长令人印象深刻,这表明全球气候科学界对该计划的高度重视。”

“支持这些国际科研学习计划是新西兰为解决农业排放问题做出的众多贡献之一。这样做将为我们提供知识,帮助新西兰和其他国家/地区的农民更加可持续地耕种。”部长说。

新西兰为CLIFF-GRADS提供奖学金资助,这是其对GRA持续支持计划的一部分。奖学金获得者在其本国进行研究时经常面临许多限制。而这一轮包括在新西兰梅西大学的两个学习机会。

“一些发展中国家地区的科研能力有限,而这项奖学金计划正在积极提升科研能力,并提供技术及设备等方面的支持。这些奖学金获得者毕业后将继续对农业排放管理产生全球影响,并为解决气候问题做出贡献。”部长说。

“他们的研究和建立的联系将有助于向发展中国家和新西兰的低排放初级生产过渡。我们为能够引领并提供支持而感到自豪。我认为这是对我们自己的可持续未来的投资-做世界上最好的农民。”

“作为2020年预算的一部分,我再次承诺在未来四年中提供$3400万来支持奖学金项目的目标,即在不增加温室气体排放的情况下种植更多粮食。”

“我要感谢GRA成员和合作伙伴组织为这些学生提供令人兴奋的机会。”部长说。

Scholarship placements for agricultural emissionsscientists doubles

Scholarships for 57 early-career agricultural emissions scientists from 20 developing countries is another example of New Zealand’s international leadership in primary sector sustainability, says Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor.

Mr O’Connor, announcing the scholarships today, says hundreds of applications were received for this fourth round of the CLIFF-GRADS programme (Climate, Food and Farming Global Research Alliance Development Scholarships) and nearly twice as many scholarships awarded as in the previous round.

“The growing interest from GRA member countries and host research institutions is impressive, and shows the high regard for this programme among the global climate science community.

“Supporting these international study programmes is one of many ways New Zealand is contributing to addressing agricultural emissions. Doing so will provide us with key knowledge to help farmers in New Zealand and in other countries to farm more sustainably,” he says.

New Zealand provides core funding for CLIFF-GRADS as part of its ongoing support of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA).

CLIFF-GRADS scholarship recipients often face a number of constraints to conducting their research in their home countries. This round includes two placements at New Zealand’s Massey University.

“This and other GRA programmes are actively boosting scientific capability in regions where that expertise is limited, by giving them access to technical expertise and equipment they would not otherwise have. These Alumni will go on to have a global impact on agricultural emissions management and contribute to addressing climate issues,” says Mr O’Connor.

“Their research and the connections formed will aid the transition to lower emissions primary production in developing countries, as well as in New Zealand, and we are proud to be providing leadership and support to those efforts. I see this also as an investment in our own sustainable future – the best farmers for the world.

“As part of Budget 2020, I have made a renewed commitment of $34 million over the next four years to continue support of the GRA and its objective to grow more food without growing greenhouse gas emissions.

“I’d to acknowledge the support of our GRA members and partner organisations for providing exciting opportunities for these students,” says Mr O’Connor.
