L2A Infrastructure EIA course details
Session 1 Considering climate risks in infrastructure EIA will position climate change in the NSW policy context, exploring the implications for EIA practice of current NSW planning law and policy relating to climate change. We will survey current policy tools, as well as some of the emerging proprietary products that assess transition, acute and chronic physical climate change risk in your infrastructure project.
Session 2 Risk assessment and adaptive pathways in infrastructure EIA will explore different approaches to climate change risk assessment, drawing attention to how these fit into current NSW EIA processes. We will consider how climate risk assessment in an EIA relates to community context, project scope, financing and ownership, leading us to consider how an adaptive pathways approach can be established in your EIA.
Session 3 Communications for resilience in infrastructure EIA will review how external and internal stakeholders engage with climate change risks associated with infrastructure projects of different scales, and in different locations. This informs how your whole EIA project team should be engaging in managing climate change risks.
