Terrestrial Biodiversity Roadshow
Terrestrial Biodiversity and Climate Change Adaptation in South Australia - Management and Policy
Tuesday 8 February 2011 at Rydges, South Park on South Terrace
The Terrestrial Biodiversity Network is aiming to significantly increase its interaction with local stakeholder groups including management agencies, policy makers and local government, in order to identify their specific research needs and major challenges to climate change adaptation for protecting the natural ecosystems within their jurisdiction.
To facilitate this process, the network ran a national "roadshow" that consisted of a one day workshop in each of the network nodes across Australia. Each workshop identified the most significant local research needs and challenges and helped to put these into a national context.
These workshops will be held in all states and territories over the next 12 months.
