Building climate change resilience and adaptive capacity in Australia’s community sector using social media and technology innovation
Foth, Marcus & Mallon, Karl (2010) Building climate change resilience and adaptive capacity in Australia’s community sector using social media and technology innovation. In Climate Adaptation Futures Conference (NCCARF 2010), 29 June - 1 July 2010, Gold Coast, Queensland.
Public and private sector organisations worldwide are putting strategies in place to manage the commercial and operational risks of climate change. However, community organisations are lagging behind in their understanding and preparedness, despite them being among the most exposed to the effects of climate change impacts and regulation. This poster presents a proposal for a multidisciplinary study that addresses this issue by developing, testing and applying a novel climate risk assessment methodology that is tailored to the needs of Australia’s community sector and its clients. Strategies to mitigate risks and build resilience and adaptive capacity will be identified including new opportunities afforded by urban informatics, social media, and technologies of scale making.
