Join us to learn about embedding resilience to climate change in Gippsland

Keynote speakers

Dr. Karl Braganza (Bureau of Meteorology) and Tayanah O’Donnell (University of Canberra) will discuss climate science and key adaptation liability and risk issues for local government.


The forum will
  • Provide an overview of latest climate science and issues of risk facing local government
  • Find out how Gippsland Councils are embedding climate adaptation work to become ‘business as usual’
  • Create an opportunity towards developing a regional approach for climate change adaptation
Have your say during the tailored afternoon workshops.

This forum heralds the culmination of an 18-month Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning funded project to integrate climate risk in Gippsland Councils. The project was delivered by consultants Loop and Co, Arup and RMIT University in partnership with Gippsland Councils.
