Hosted in-person at The Australian National University and online, this annual event brings together experts, policymakers, students, industry and the community to discuss the state of our climate and what can be done to tackle climate change.
At the 2023 edition of the ANU Climate Update, expert speakers will present an overview of how the global climate is changing and how we are responding to these changes.
3-4pm – State of our Climate
This session will summarise the latest climate research, including a snapshot of newly released data on how our climate changed in 2022. The session will conclude with audience Q&A.
4-4.40pm – Break
Light refreshments available for in-person participants
4.40-6pm – How can we sequester carbon whilst supporting other societal goals?
Whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions at their source is always preferable to drawing them down later, some emissions are very difficult to abate and there will be an ongoing role for carbon removal to meet our climate targets as outlined in the Paris Agreement. This session will focus on how we can ensure the integrity of carbon dioxide removal and concurrently maximise other co-benefits such as supporting biodiversity and First Nations communities. The session will conclude with audience Q&A.
