Evidence based planning for resilient World Heritage Areas
Tuesday, 22 September
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm AEST
Twenty World Heritage Areas are recognised in Australia by UNESCO for their unique cultural, geographical, and biological diversity. While these areas support outstanding universal values, they are under risk from diseases, invasive species, and declining ecosystem processes. These ecological pressures may be exacerbated in the presence of a changing climate.
Drawing on recent research on the Gondwana rainforests, our speakers will discuss the benefits and challenges of integrating climate change and biodiversity knowledge in developing adaptive management plans to build more resilient World Heritage Areas.
