As we continue to navigate the impacts of a changing climate, the need for effective resilience and preparedness strategies are critical. But how should practitioners foster a culture that recognises the value proposition of early resilience planning? And how do we tackle and overcome climate vulnerability now to minimise disruption in the future?  


Coming off the back of TRANSFORM  2024 where resilience was a prioritised topic, this in-depth masterclass will explore the challenges presented by the impacts of climate change and the opportunities to mitigate them.  By attending,  you will gain insight from experts who have first-hand experience to address the common pain points that arise when preparing for climate and operational risk.  


Key issues to address include:  

  • Understanding the critical need for stakeholder engagement at the planning stage and best practice for implementation 
  • How to assess and respond to flood and urban heat islands  
  • Navigating climate adaptation of existing assets and working within limitations
  • Examining the fine scale projection opportunities for resilience through the NSW and Australian Regional Climate Modelling 
  • Exploring how to embed resilience and adaptation in design, planning and due diligence 
  • Climate resilience assessment for existing buildings – what are the operational considerations?  
  • Addressing where the opportunities exist to make more impactful decisions to prepare and respond to climate related risks  

Hear from our expert speakers including:  

  • Paul Himberger, Sustainability and Research Manager, Landcom 
  • Giovanni Di Virgilio, Senior Team Leader, Climate Research, NSW Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water
  • Renae Walton, Principal Climate Adaptation Officer, City of Port Philip
