Five partners collaborate for New Zealand’s land based future ~ Lincoln Hub Plan Preparation

Background and aims

In 2013 the five Lincoln Hub Partners embarked on an ambitious plan to bring their organisations closer together to deliver greater land based sector returns for New Zealand. New Zealand’s economic, social and environmental future is dependent on this improvement as this sector currently returns 30% of GDP and the New Zealand Government’s aim is to increase this to 40% by 2025. GDP growth will not be cost-free however, as the sector is based on the use of natural resources; the aim is to increase productivity and economic returns, while at the same time reducing environmental impacts.

The Lincoln Hub aims to deliver its collaboration physically, scientifically and operationally at Lincoln in Canterbury New Zealand.
