Event description

Description

SEGRA 2019 at Barooga provides an opportunity to bring together a critical mass of practitioners, researchers and administrators to initiate a proactive collaborative program to address community and commercial concerns over the risks arising from changing climatic conditions. Especially, the impacts of the prolonged drought on the rivers and wetlands of the Far South West Region (FSWR) of NSW.

Impacts encompass: loss of Indigenous connectivity to cultural lands and waters; degradation of riverine and floodplain systems, reduction in aquatic and terrestrial biodiversity, physical impairment of infrastructure and buildings, and financial losses from decreased primary production and tourism, increased environmental and population health risks and associated costs. A coordinated governmentally endorsed regional approach is required that delivers on governmental policies, accommodates geographic realities, and meet societal expectations.

The purposes are threefold.

  • Consolidate and review the messages and outputs from the MDB Forum, optimising biophysical and socio-economic opportunities arising from changing environmental conditions in the Murray Darling Basin of 19 August and Conference Sessions.

  • Scope the key challenges being confronted by regional Local Government Authorities (LGAs) and the resources available to councils and communities address them.

  • Identify and agree a pathway forward to:- protect and optimise the potential of regional ecosystem services- reduce the risks from changing environmental condition including extreme climatic variability- embed sustainability principles for the utilisation of natural resources and the livelihoods and lifestyles of people in the GSWR.
