Climate Change Special Interest Section

Climate Change Special Interest Section

The Climate Change Special Interest Section (CCSIS) was set up in 2011 to maintain an Institute focus on climate change and direct member activities in this area to benefit the Institute and the environment industry as a whole.

The main priorities of the CCSIS are to:

  • Develop and implement a certification process for climate change practitioners
  • Develop and deliver a climate change adaptation professional development program

There has been significant progress in regard to both priorities.

In 2014, climate change was added as a specialist category to the Certified Environmental Practitioner Scheme, making it the first certification program for climate change practitioners in Australia and New Zealand.
