ICOMOS Webinar Series | Caring For Country: Webinar 2: Climate Change Adaptation for Aboriginal Cultural Heritage

Poster Caring for Country Webinar 2The second Webinar in the Caring For Country Webinar Series is on 8 September 2021. This Webinar Series has been organized by the Caring For Country Committee, a Working Group of Australia ICOMOS, with members from Australia ICOMOS, ICOMOS New Zealand, ICOMOS Pasifika and Non-ICOMOS members from Oceania.


In Webinar 2: ‘Climate Change Adaptation for Aboriginal Cultural Heritage’, Polly Mitchell will outline the ‘Climate Change Adaptation for Aboriginal Cultural Heritage’ project which aims to increase the capacity of NSW Aboriginal communities to discuss and consider adaptation decision-making around climate change impacts. The project uses the most up to date information and co-designed adaptation pathways, to work with Aboriginal communities to identify options for protecting and adapting culture and heritage. The process enables the multiple points of views in the community to be heard, and fosters discussions that can form a considered strategy, rather than reactive response to individual climatic events. Enabling these kinds of discussions, and how strategies and actions are formed as a result, is the goal of this project.

Jason Wilson will talk about his work tackling Climate Change Adaptation with the Narran Lakes Joint Management Committee and OEH in this project. Narran Lakes country shows the effects of changes in climates over eons. Recent climate change has impacted Narran Lakes country and the cultural heritage embodied in the country. Mitigation measures have been taken by the Narran Lakes Joint Management Committee to protect this cultural heritage and country.
