Dr Michael Dunlop, Enabling Adaptation Pathways  CSIRO
Lunch provided

This half-day workshop is aimed at program managers and project officers seeking to incorporate climate adaptation into biodiversity conservation. The workshop will provide a hands-on opportunity to work with biodiversity conservation case studies from the Sydney region. It will build on work developed around the Climate Ready Tool, but does not require prior engagement with that tool.

Connectivity & biodiversity in an urban landscape: Genia McCaffery Cottage, 1:00pm-4:30pm, Thur 10th November 2016
A/Prof Sarah Bekessy, Design and Social Context, RMIT
Lunch provided

Managing biodiversity in urban remnants is one of the most challenging conservation problems we face in our region. Maintaining populations of flora and fauna in small isolated remnants within the urban landscape, where edge effects and invasive species, disrupted disturbance regimes, loss of gene flow and decline in ecosystem processes such as pollination all contribute to the decline in ecosystem health and long term viability. This half-day workshop will look at the latest science around managing biodiversity in the urban context, look at strategies for managing urban biodiversity and examine practical case studies and projects attempting to address these issues.
