L2A Bushfire planning 9, 16 and 23 September 2021

This course will deliver targeted skills development on climate change in bushfire planning. Guided by expert speakers from the research and policy communities and by case studies presented by practitioners, we will be considering how to manage bushfire planning under the influence of climate change.

Climate driven changes to Australia’s fire regimes have implications for a range of environmental planning and assessment activities, like the management of biodiversity offsets and planning for asset protection. Indigenous land management practices are informing responses to bushfires. Our focus is on the NSW jurisdiction, exploring themes that apply just as well elsewhere.

Who should attend?

This course has been designed for practitioners looking to develop a specialisation or update their skills in natural resource management and looking to develop specialised skills in regulatory, policy, consulting responses to climate change and bushfire planning.

Places are limited. L2A Bushfire planning will run with a maximum of 30 participants to ensure quality of learning, and adequate scope for networking and engagement. The program will not be recorded to encourage open discussion.
