Climate Change Adaptation and the Business Sector

When: 23 April 2013, 4 - 6pm, followed by refreshments
Where: Museum of Sydney, Corner Bridge and Phillip Sts, CBD
With the increase in damages from climate-related extreme events, 
the world is witnessing how changes in climate (and associated 
regulatory and market responses) in one location can send ripples 
through businesses globally. The World Economic Forum recently 
highlighted failure to address climate change adaptation as one of 
the top ten risks to the global economy.
In Australia there is a limited understanding about what climate 
change means for the business sector or how the sector is likely 
to respond. In response, NCCARF has commissioned a range of 
research projects that explore these issues.
Research presented at this forum explores issues surrounding 
climate change impacts and responses associated with insurance, 
boardroom engagement, strata title and climate legal risk.
