Delivering the 2018 Victorian State of the Environment Report (AMOS and Royal Society of Victoria)
September 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
The 2018 State of the Environment report will answer critical questions about the health of Victoria’s natural environment. What has changed in five years? How does Victoria’s air and water quality measure up? What is the condition of our state’s unique flora and fauna? How healthy are our soils and waterways? How do we transition to a contemporary waste management and resource recovery system? What are the trends and future projections for Victoria’s changing climate?
This talk provides an opportunity for the Victorian public to hear Victoria’s Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability, Dr Gillian Sparkes present on the Interim SoE 2018 report and our progress towards answering those important questions in the final release – the key policy and management issues, and the data and information challenges, for each of the twelve themes: air quality, climate, biodiversity, land health, forests, fire, water resources, water quality, coastal and marine environments, waste and resource recovery, energy and transport. Dr Sparkes will also address the emerging opportunity to adopt the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as a framework for monitoring Victoria’s progress against critical environmental targets over the next decade.
