Science, diplomacy and trade: A view from a small OECD agricultural economy
This chapter comprises three parts. The first covers New Zealand’s need for biosecurity, food safety and trade, while the second refers to the expedient for the country to contribute to research on the global abatement of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. The third part pulls these ideas together by discussing and illustrating how science has been essential to informing and empowering some of the country’s diplomatic interests and initiatives.
