2009 NCCARF Western Australian Symposium

Murdoch University, Perth, WA
Event Date: 
Tuesday, December 8, 2009 - 7:15am to 5:15pm

Murdoch University is organising and hosting a one-day Climate Change Adaptation Symposium to be held in Perth on the 8th of December, 2009. The purpose of the Symposium is to provide a forum for Western Australian researchers to connect with lead researchers from other parts of Australia, and to promote and facilitate a national network of climate change adaptation researchers. 

It also aims to ‘showcase’ latest advancements in climate change adaptation research, with a particular focus on Western Australia, and an opportunity for the Western Australian research community to learn more about the activities of the National Climate Change and Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF), including its Networks. Presentations will include an overview of NCCARF, and presentations from the Adaptation Research Networks.
