Climate Change & Risk Guidance Workshops


To help business and government plan for the impacts of climate change, the Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) is holding FREE two-hour Climate Change and Risk Management Guidance Workshops in every Australian capital city between May and June 2006. These workshops are aimed at company directors, Local Government Councillors, senior managers and specialist risk managers.

These short workshops will be presented by AGO representatives, leading Australian climate scientists and specialists in economics, risk management and public policy from Marsden Jacob Associates and Broadleaf Capital International Pty Ltd.

The workshops will be based around a new AGO publication, "Climate Change Impacts and Risk Management: A Guide for Business and Government". This guide shows how routine application of the Australian and New Zealand Standard for Risk Management, AS/NZS 4360:2004 can be extended to include the risks generated by climate change.

Workshops will cover:

  • How climate change will affect Australia;
  • The purpose of the guide;
  • A step through the guide.
Workshop participants will receive free copies of "Climate Change Impacts and Risk Management: A Guide for Business and Government" and other resources.
