About this Event

The second event in our Rivers on Fire series, this RiverDialogue gives participants the opportunity to hear more and delve deeper into the effects of fire on our rivers, catchments and their communities.

The program will run across two half days and will bring together experts from government, industry, science and community with the aim to raise awareness and create a call for action to address the effects of fire on waterways and their surrounding communities. With so much happening in the world right now, RiverDialogue will bring this critical topic back into focus.

The exciting program will feature international and Australian speakers over two days. Hear from a keynote each day, followed by a concurrent session with five relevant topics to choose from. At the completion of each day, delegates will come together to synthesis the discussions from each session. Information will be pulled together into a RiverDialogue Communique for a Call for Action for our rivers and communities. A Think Tank will be convened at a later date to discuss how the recommendations can be progressed.

Topics for discussion will include:

* Aquatic biota - including river management and resilience to fire; river and floodplain function; water quality aquatic microbiota, foodwebs

* Water quality - including drinking water, hydrology and modelling

* Catchment management - including risk assessment and industry experiences

* Fire and water management - including water policy related talks

* Terrestrial and water interface - including wildlife and forest management.

This event is run by the International RiverFoundation in partnership with Charles Sturt University.

Speakers and full program will be available soon.
