Water and Climate Dialogue Series

Dear AWP friend

We invite you to join us for our Sharing Water & Climate Stories 
Dialogue Series from August 2022 – February 2023 to bring together water managers across Australia and the Indo-Pacific, Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to share stories of their water resource management and climate adaptation journey.

This dialogue series will create momentum across the Australian water sector on  water and climate action including the use and integration of traditional and Indigenous knowledge as we head towards the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27 and the UN 2023 Water Conference.

Please register below for the first session which will be a scene-setting webinar on linkages between water and climate including Indigenous and traditional WRM approaches. The limitations to adaptation responses will be highlighted, followed by Q&A. The webinar will conclude with a short perspective on integration of traditional knowledge and a survey on further engagement in the dialogues and the topic of water and climate.

Date: Thursday, 25 August at 10am (AEST)

Speakers in this session include:
  • Sonia Cooper, Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation
  • Sarah Ransom, Australian Water Partnership
  • Scott Power, University of Southern Queensland
  • Solomon Islands Meteorological Service
  • Jianbin Wang, Water Sensitive Cities Australia
  • Jason Wilson, Commonwealth Environmental Water Office and Narran Lakes Joint Management Committee

Following the webinar, three participatory dialogues will be held to encourage sharing, listening and conversation on the opportunities, challenges, and possible solutions for improving the integration of western science with traditional and indigenous science and practices for better water adaptation planning across the region. Each subsequent dialogue will be developed and adapted based on participants’ discussions, interests and continuous feedback throughout the dialogue series.

More information about this webinar and upcoming dialogues in the series will be available on the event page as we confirm speakers. 

We look forward to seeing you online and hearing your stories during this session.
