Climate change and the emergency management sector: discussion paper

17 Jul 2018
Description

This discussion paper provides a comprehensive overview of the risks and impacts facing the emergency management sector associated with climate change. These include physical risks (such as weather and ocean hazards, consequences of ecosystem changes, coincident and cascading events), as well as transition risks driven by broader changes in society, and the legal risks arising from a failure to act.

The discussion paper was endorsed by AFAC Council in May 2018. It establishes a series of priorities for action which will be advanced through the Climate Change Working Group.

The Working Group will continue to identify opportunities and risks of climate change and support the development of strategic priorities and initiatives for AFAC members and the emergency management sector.
