eCPD - SSSI NSW & WA Online Conference: Climate Change and Disaster Management
Date & Time
Tuesday, 30 Nov 2021
- 5:30 pm
SSSI NSW & WA were pleased to join together to hold a half day online conference on the application of geospatial for climate change and disaster management. This was held on the afternoon of Monday 30 November via Zoom and focused on case studies, technologies and interactive engagement.
The event was part of a five day conference series on the theme of Climate Change and Disaster Management :Technology and Resilience in a Troubled World on 30 November - 4 December 2020.
Across the world, nature-triggered disasters fuelled by climate change are worsening. Some two billion people have been affected by the consequences of natural hazards over the last ten years, 95% of which were weather-related (such as floods and windstorms). Over the last summer in Australia, bushfires have caused unprecedented destruction to lives, wildlife and property. Floods have since ravaged many of these same communities.
SSSI held a successful online mapping challenge in February 2020 to capture thousands of buildings and other structures in burn out areas across Australia from high resolution imagery, which has been used by authorities for management assessment.
Good cooperation and coordination of crisis response operations are of critical importance to react rapidly and adequately to any crisis situation, while post-disaster recovery presents opportunities to build resilience towards reducing the scale of the next disaster.
SSSI NSW & WA's online conference featured keynote speakers who are leaders in the industry to set the scene for the current climate change science. Presenters gave a geospatial perspective on monitoring and analysis of climate change and disaster related events.
