Cultivating climate change resilience in agri-food systems: Responses to natural disasters and emerging climate risks in Queensland

Short Summary of Resource
This thesis considers how the agri-food supply chains that underpin Australia’s food system are enabled or constrained to cope with emerging climate risks and, in particular, to a more rapid recurrence of damaging weather events
Detailed description of the resource
In this thesis, supply chains are conceptualized as social institutions and identified as a key location in the food system fordecision-making regarding the management of climate risks. The empirical focus of the research is national-scale fresh produce supply chains based on vegetables produced in south-east Queensland’s Lockyer and Fassifern Valleys. These supply chains have been affected by a series of severe weather events and natural disasters since 2011
