These sessions will provide climate risk management training to ensure that Elected Members and council staff understand relevant risks, roles and responsibilities. Climate risk management briefings and training sessions will also be held on planning, asset management and public health between February and May 2018.
The briefings and training sessions will be based on the LGA’s Climate Risk Management guidance notes, which will be provided prior to attendance.
A variety of presenters will deliver practical examples of their experiences with climate risk management in the context of economic development and financial risk management.
The two briefings for Elected Members will focus on why it is important for council decision makers to consider climate risks when planning for economic development and when discharging their financial management obligations.
The two training sessions for council staff will focus on the practical benefits of considering climate risk implications, provide an overview of strategies that can be put in place to improve economic development outcomes, and contribute to council’s financial sustainability.
Please be advised that these training sessions and briefings have been postponed, and will be held between February and May 2018.
