A supercharged climate: Grand challenges of adaptation in Australia

Saturday, 24 October 2020, 3:45:00 am UTC

Climate change is exacerbating extreme weather events and Australians must prepare for escalating threats. Climate adaptation, along with tackling carbon pollution is crucial but adaptation is a new reality for countries like Australia. This panel will discuss a wide range of issues including last summer’s bushfires, how we can manage disasters better, which policies should be put in place to secure resilient communities, and how we can make decisions now that can help us to thrive in an uncertain future.

The panel members all work on climate adaptation and will bring their expertise to unravel this complex topic with practical examples.
