8:30 am on 4 June 2013

Scientists and researchers are gathering in Palmerston North for a climate change conference.

New Zealand Climate Change Centre director David Wratt said this year's drought has highlighted how the country's economy can be affected by the climate.

The first day of the conference will focus on the physical science and effects of climate change.

The second day will look at mitigation and the role of policy makers and the media.
