IPCC Report (AR6 WG2): Special briefing for councils – March Webinar

3 Mar 2022
2:00pm - 3:00pm

The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) takes a harrowing look at the latest science on climate change – what impacts are already locked in, which communities and ecosystems are most vulnerable, and what the world must do to adapt to a rapidly changing climate and protect the lives and landscapes we hold most dear.

Join us on Thursday the 3rd of March at 2:00pm AEDT as Professor Lesley Hughes breaks down the findings from the latest IPCC report, and what it means for Australian local governments.
