Mining sector workshop – Sector Adaptation Plan

Provide your input into the Industry and Resources Sector Adaptation Plan

The Centre for Policy Futures, UQ is developing the Industry and Resources Sector Adaptation Plan to support Queensland’s energy, mining and manufacturing sectors to better manage risks and harness the opportunities of a changing climate.

The Sector Adaptation Plan is industry-led, commissioned by the Queensland Government, and coordinated by The University of Queensland’s Centre for Policy Futures.  The Plan is an important part of the Queensland Climate Adaptation Strategy 2017–2030, and aims to inform industry practice and Queensland Government policy.

We are delighted to invite you to our energy, mining or manufacturing sector workshop to develop the Plan by sharing knowledge, validating prior analysis and industry survey results, and prioritising adaptation actions (details below).

Workshop topics will include:

  • Risks and opportunities: Impacts of climate change (physical, financial and transition), and the risks and opportunities they present to the sector.
  • Adaptation practices: Barriers to adaptation, adaption actions, and enabling policy/practice.

Please feel free to recommend others to attend from your networks. A discussion paper can be provided in advance.  If you are unable to attend, then we invite you to provide written feedback on the discussion paper.
