Launch - A National Strategy for Just Adaptation
Join the Australian Academy of Science and Future Earth Australia to watch the livestreamed launch of A National Strategy for Just Adaptation. This much-anticipated strategy is being launched at Parliament House by the Assistant Minister for Climate Change and Energy, Senator the Hon Jenny McAllister.
A National Strategy for Just Adaptation is a result of over two years of collaboration and research by more than 35 authors from diverse backgrounds representing 13 university, government and private partners.
The primary focus of the strategy is to centre First Nations rights and voices, and to call out the need for serious introspection on behalf of colonial-based systems and institutions that work on or in sustainability more broadly. The strategy seeks to disrupt current adaptation thinking and foster recognition, inclusion and capacity building for all Peoples and nature.
Based at the Australian Academy of Science, Future Earth Australia is a peak initiative that convenes leaders across expertise, sectors and the nation to advance the sustainability agenda and forge pathways to a thriving future.
Our vision sees Australia and its people thriving in, and contributing to, a sustainable and equitable world. We bring together influential voices to deliver leading research and programs on Australia’s most pressing sustainability challenges, and we connect to unique global networks to leverage international expertise.
