Climate Adaptation and Resilience Master class



Impacts from climate change are fast becoming a recognised risk for asset owners, developers, government and investors worldwide. From their recognition in COP21, to their development for the City of Sydney, to their introduction in Green Star, resilience and adaptation plans are quickly becoming a method to reduce risk, prioritise responses, and create design and operational solutions that ensure assets are to serve occupants long term.

Presented by Rebecca Miller, and joined by an exceptional guest speaker, this course is relevant to those seeking to learn about this emerging and critical field in the built environment.
