MEET OUR ECONOMISTS
Dr Neal Hughes - Senior Economist, will discuss the findings of his recent research on the impacts of drought and climate change on Australian farms, outlining how ABARES combines rich data sets, with economic thinking and modern analysis methods to generate new policy insights.
Dale Ashton - Senior Economist and Director of the Farm Analysis program will provide insight into how ABARES runs national farm survey programs, including the recent Natural resource management and drought resilience survey. Dale will discuss how we design and implement surveys, and communicate the findings while closely engaging with the agricultural sector.
Fred Litchfield - Economist, will walk us through recent work on agricultural labour issues, which have become a hot topic particularly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This work has included changing the way that we present our data analysis, moving into the space of interactive dashboards to support evidence based policy.
