Invitation only – BCCM member event
The Sixth Assessment Report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the sixth in a series of reports which assess scientific, technical, and socio-economic information concerning climate change. The first release of the report in August covers the physical science. It is the most up-to-date physical understanding of the climate system and climate change, bringing together the latest advances in climate science, and combining multiple lines of evidence from paleoclimate, observations, process understanding, and global and regional climate simulations.
This webinar will cover:
- What are the latest scientific findings and implications for Australia? – presented by Michael Grose of CSIRO
- What are the potential implications for the co-operatives and mutual sector? – presented by Rade Musulin of Finity Consulting
There will be ample time for Q & A, chaired by Sharanjit Paddam of Finity Consulting.
