The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report warns, once again, that climate-change impacts—hazards such as bushfires, drought and flooding—are becoming more frequent and more intense, damaging nature, people and infrastructure. Yet measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to these climate-fuelled hazards are coming far too slow.

We urgently need transformational solutions that stop disasters in their tracks. Such solutions would prevent deaths and destruction, protect biodiversity and improve air quality. They would also vastly reduce the costs of disaster management.

In this special Game Change Webinar, Dr Roslyn Prinsley will present an overview of emerging transformational solutions to disasters being developed in our own backyard. Dr Prinsley will make the case for urgent, increased and stronger public-private partnerships to prevent and minimise the risk of disasters.

Dr Roslyn Prinsley is Head of Disaster Solutions at the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions.

This webinar will be moderated by Professor Mark Howden, Director of the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions and a Vice-Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
