The implications of sea level rise and climate change are being examined by the EPA Division and you have the chance to hear about the latest work on that topic and more when the Coastal and Marine Branch presents the next Divisional Seminar on Monday May 31.
The branch boasts some of the Division’s longest-serving staff with more than 50 years combined experience and the small team – Chris Rees, Kristy Blackburn, Kathy Noble, Jocelyn Phillips and Leah Page – will outline their roles.
While the branch sits under the umbrella of the EPA Division, it operates by building relationships with a wide range of DPIPWE staff, other government agencies such as the Tasmanian Climate Change Office and the PWS and external stakeholders such NRM regional bodies.
Among the activities to be outlined at the seminar are the Coastal Works Manual (a best practice management guide for stakeholders working on the coast), the review of the Tasmanian State Coastal Policy 1996 and various coastal adaptation to climate change projects.
Hear all about it in the Lands Building 6th floor conference room from 10.30am-11.30am.
