Managing Your Land for the Future – Resilience and Adaptation for Climate Change

Friday, 18 March 2016 - 9:00am to Saturday, 19 March 2016 - 4:00pm

A two-day forum hosted by the Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment Coordinating Committee (UMCCC)

The climate in the upper Murrumbidgee catchment is changing. Temperature records are regularly broken, seasonal climate patterns are moving and extremes of drought and flood are predicted. Those living on the land or managing land and water resources are dealing with the changes on a daily basis. Managing for adaptation and resilience is essential.

This two day event includes speakers addressing the science of Climate Change such as Mark Stafford Smith from the Climate Adaptation Flagship at CSIRO, through to practical applications such as ‘Temperature and animal health’ by Phil Graham at NSW DPI. These will be coupled with field trips to different parts of the catchment to learn about ‘whole-of-paddock’ rehabilitation and looking after your River Paddocks.
