The Alliance has produced a position paper, Rural health policy in a changing climate: three key issues, found at the following link: www.ruralhealth.org.au/document/position-paper-rural-health-policy-changing-climate-three-key-issues
One of the three key issues discussed in this position paper is food security (see specifically pages 8–12). The issues raised in this part of the position paper relate directly to the term of reference for this inquiry:
– The potential opportunities and threats of climate change on food production in Australia.
