Climate science update & implications for livability

On Tuesday 7 May 2019 the Living In a Changing Climate Forum brought together experts to discuss two key issues facing our society: climate change and affordable housing. Senator Larissa Waters opened the discussion, followed by expert input from Prof Brendan Mackey (Director Griffith Climate Change Response Program) who presented - Climate science update and implications for livability.

Mapping & measuring ecosystem services

On 6 May 2019 Dr Tim Cadman of Griffith University presented at the Centre of Development Research (ZEF), University of Bonn - Mapping and measuring ecosystem services. Understanding what contemporary international policy regimes ‘look’ like is critical to engaging policymakers and the public in processes that are often bewildering and frustrating. The Climate Regime Map and Eco-Regime Map, developed by Griffith University, are intended as decision-support tools to enable users to navigate themselves around global environmental agreements.

COP 24 side event presentation

Prof Brendan Mackey, GCCRP Director, presentation to the Global Landscapes Forum, Katowice, Poland, December 2018 - The interdependence of forests, ecosystem integrity & biodiversity for climate action. The presentation was part of a Discussion Forum - The critical role of Biodiversity Protection and Ecosystem Integrity in Climate Mitigation Outcomes for Land and Forest-based Climate Action - a side event at the UN Climate Change Conference held in Poland from 2 - 14 December 2018.

On 2 November 2018 the Collaborative Australia-Indonesia Program for Sustainable Development and Climate Change (CAISDCC) was launched in Jakarta.  The Program is a Griffith University initiative held in collaboration with the Indonesian President’s Special Envoy for Climate Change and the Universitas Indonesia.  This video welcomed guests to the launch and outlines the aims of the Program.

Climate change is presenting an existential threat in the Pacific; with island nation states not only a loss of property, but a loss of culture and identity. The EcoAdapt project identifies ecosystem-based approaches for climate change adaptation in the coastal zone of Pacific island states and territories in the face of a rapidly changing climate.
