About the topic

With the release of the Financial Stability Board’s Recommendations from the Taskforce on Climate Related Financial Disclosures in June 2017, the expectations on executive management teams to take action on climate change has become real.

However, there is often a gap between fundamental global climate science and what the local needs are of Australian industries, governments, and communities when developing adaptation and mitigation strategies.

While climate change is a global phenomenon, its specific impacts at any location will be felt as a change to local weather conditions. This means we need regional studies to understand the effects of climate change to specific areas. Equally, misinterpretation of climate data and models can lead to unjustified levels of trust (or mistrust) with the potential to misinform adaptation and policy decisions.

The provision of localised, targeted, relevant climate information, produced at high resolution, allows for the analysis of climate impacts at different locations as well as determining trends in different seasons, or specific extreme events.

This webinar will focus on some tips and tricks for how best to extract the information you need from the leading-edge research (or researchers) such that it becomes relevant, useful and usable information decision makers can trust.

About Tom Remenyi

Dr. Remenyi’s work is focused on converting leading-edge scientific research into relevant, useful, usable information for decision makers. His training in economics, analytical chemistry, marine biogeochemistry, data analysis and interpretation as well as field sampling and project management enable him to bring different skills to the various teams he works within and across a range of disciplines.

He dedicates significant time to stakeholder engagement, is a member of a number of committees and working groups and is a regular workshop facilitator. He also provides the technical expertise for services such as data provision, analysis, presentation and interpretation for stakeholders and within the Climate Futures team.

Past clients have included emergency services, hydroelectric companies, agricultural producers, alpine resort operators, forestry managers, wine makers and aquaculture producers. His work draws on the collective expertise of world-leading climate scientists from across multiple agencies, including advisors to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
