MAY 2017 Guest Speakers

Prof Peter Waterman (University of the Sunshine Coast)
Susie Chapman (Health Land and Water)
Stewart Pentland (MBRC – Director Planning and Economic Development)
Kate Isles (MBRC – Manager Strategic Planning and Economic Development)

It is now beyond dispute that the Earth’s climate is changing and that we need to adapt to this

Guest Speakers will discuss:

  • Adapting to changing climatic conditions in SEQ
  • Climate Proofing Bribie – climate change preparation for this community
  • Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy

The Climate Proofing Bribie Island Action Plan that the Bribie Island community (facilitated by
Uni of Sunshine Coast and SEQ Catchments), developed and presented to MBRC in 2010 was
referenced in the presentations.
Update: The general meeting and AGM were well attended and everyone agreed that the
presentations were most informative. The Guest Speakers agreed to have their presentations
added to the BIEPA web site for your convenience. We thank them.
