2017 Green Week Seminar

Topic: Conservation, Carbon Capture and Risk Management – a win/win for Australia’s rangelands?

Australia’s Rangelands cover 80% of the country, include a huge diversity of habitats and ecological communities and generate billions of dollars through agriculture, pastoralism, tourism and mining. A collaborative research partnership between The GreenCollar Group and UTS Centre for Compassionate Conservation (CfCC) aims to increase the understanding of risk factors to current carbon capture projects undertaken via the Commonwealth’s Emission Reduction Fund. Can scientific expertise and industry market know how come  together to identify opportunities that will maximise conservation and biodiversity outcomes whilst promoting social welfare?
 
 Dr Rachael Nolan from UTS Centre for Compassionate Conservation and Dr Jenny Sinclair from Green Collar will explain how this innovative research program works and how risk is managed.
 
Refreshments available at conclusion of the talk.
