Vulnerable Communities and Climate Change

• What role should the community sector play in climate policy?
• Which communities are particularly vulnerable and why?
• How can we apply a climate lens to our existing policy areas?

Climate change poses serious and perennial risks to all facets of society. However, some communities face greater risk than others because socioeconomic and health factors constrain their ability to take appropriate adaptation responses.

The Australian Council of Social Service and the Vulnerable Communities Network are partnering to facilitate engagement and dialogue between researchers, policy makers and the community sector on the complex causes of social vulnerability to climate change.

Join us in in Perth on 31 August to hear an inspiring panel of expert speakers and workshop the policy implications for the people most affected by extreme weather events and the organisations that support them.
