It is clear that climate change is already affecting the health and well-being of communities around Australia. These impacts will continue to unfold and our ability to protect and promote health will depend on our actions over the coming decade. This workshop will review the connections between climate and health and highlight how Health Impact Assessment (HIA) can be used to inform Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessments. It will provide hands-on examples of how the process is undertaken and provide participants with the opportunity to apply the approach to their own work.  An overview of the ‘Operational framework for building climate resilient health systems’ will also be included.

Facilitators:  

  • Dr Helen Brown, Director of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Health Impact Assessment, School of Public Health, Curtin University.

Climate Health WA Inquiry – under the bonnet

Finish Time: 3:00pm

Registration Cost: 

  • PHAA/AHPA Member Workshop Registration - $30

The workshop will describe the context, origins, authorising environment, communications process and approach taken for the Climate Health WA Inquiry, which is due to report to the WA Minister for Health by end March 2020. 

If the final report has been released by the date of the workshop, the findings and recommendations will be discussed explicitly. If not, we will focus on the interim outputs (consultation reports, written submissions and hearing transcripts) already placed on the Inquiry website at https://ww2.health.wa.gov.au/Improving-WA-Health/Climate-health-inquiry

We will invite a range of participants to speak at the workshop from both inside and outside the Inquiry team, to capture a broad range of lessons learnt.

The workshop will allow attendees to consider whether elements of the Inquiry, or its methods, might be applicable to other jurisdictions in Australia.

For attendees with a particular interest in Climate and Health, and who are staying in Perth for the weekend, we will hold an informal dinner on the Friday night to continue the conversation.

More information about the workshop and speakers will be available soon.
