Workshop invitation: Climate Change Adaptation Plan for the Emergency Management Sector in Queensland

Register now for a workshop to contribute to Climate Change Adaptation Plan for Emergency Management Sector in Queensland

We are inviting stakeholders with an interest in climate change and the emergency management sector to participate in an on-line survey or in a face-to-face workshop. The Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES) has engaged the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) to develop an Emergency Management Sector Adaptation Plan (EM-SAP) under the Queensland Climate Adaptation Strategy (Q-CAS) 2017-2030. To develop the EM-SAP, QFES is partnering with the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF).

We invite relevant stakeholders from state, district and local level disaster management groups, Government Departments, Local Government, Emergency Service Organisations, volunteer organisations, public and private infrastructure operators, research and academia to be involved in consultation. Consultation includes an online survey and face-to-face workshops in Yeppoon (2nd May), Brisbane (11th May), Cairns (14th May), and Longreach (date to be confirmed).

In order to provide you a background of this project and a brief overview of climate change impact on the emergency management sector we have developed a discussion paper which can be accessed here.

We hope to see you in a workshop and also encourage you and your colleagues to respond to the survey by 20th May 2018.
