Planning for climate change: How the NSW planning system can better tackle greenhouse gas emissions


We are launching a new report, Planning for climate change: how the NSW planning system can better tackle greenhouse gas emissions, on Wednesday 27 July 2016.

With the NSW Government flagging proposed changes to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 it is timely to consider the many important issues not currently addressed under the NSW planning system, including climate change. 

The planning system can play a critical role in mitigating the future costs of climate change. However major projects such as CSG and coal mining continue to receive approval without proper consideration of the future climate impacts of those projects.

Join us for a discussion of the report’s key recommendations for how the planning system can be improved to better tackle NSW’s greenhouse gas emissions. 

With the generous support of Baker & McKenzie, we are holding a lunchtime seminar and launch for the report on Wednesday 27 July 2016. Lunch will be provided. Please let us know your special dietary needs by emailing us at edonsw@edonsw.org.au.

This event is now fully booked. Thank you for your interest.
