Reducing & Managing Climate Risk –  Disaster Risk Reduction Workshop for small NGOs
Date: Wednesday August 18
Time: 1PM-5PM
Location: 47 King William Road, Unley, SA 5061Due to the impacts of climate change, South Australia is expected to experience increased heatwaves and droughts, more intense storm activity with flooding, and coastal inundation from rising sea levels and storm surges. These events pose risks for health and community service sector organisations, their assets, people, clients and communities.

Join us for a workshop to get a greater understanding of the risks to your organization, learn how to access and use risk assessment tools and build preparedness and resilience in your organization, clients and community.

There are still spaces available for organisations that wish to attend – but register now to avoid missing out. Aimed at senior executives, risk managers and board members of smaller organisations, this workshop will cover:

  • Climate risk for the community services sector
  • Impact of emergencies or disasters on the sector and clients
  • Using risk assessment tools to enhance decision-making
  • Building preparedness and resilience in your organisation, clients and community
  • Tools, resources and strategies to support effective action

This event is part of a larger series of workshops targeting a range of specific service areas. For the full list of workshops, go here.
