What will science and technology be like in 30 years? How might policy-making be different? When you bring the two together, will the interface between science and policy itself be different? In this forward-looking session, eminent water scientists and policy-makers will share their creative thinking about how science and technology may re-connect with policy
In this seminar, Dr Megan Evans will highlight some of these current trends that have led to biodiversity loss being regarded as the “next frontier’ for financial risk management. She will also describe how a growing role for the private sector could have quite profound implications for environmental governance, including how biodiversity is governed, by whom, and for what purpose.
In 2017, the NSW Government implemented new measures for biodiversity conservation and land management through the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.
