AdaptNow - Adapt West Disaster Risk Reduction Grant funded project 2021


June 2021 - Update

AdaptNow! - Building on the successful townhall style hypothetical event previously undertaken by Resilient South and Resilient East (called Hot, Hot, Hot), the AdaptWest event intends to focus on the cascading impacts of heatwave, bushfire smoke, heatwave and flood risk with several background workshops leading to a hosted event where scenarios and impacts are explored with a panel of guest experts and an MC.


Recognising the constraints of a Covid focused world – if necessary, AdaptWest have proposed moving away from a purely townhall event to make the “event” a hybrid model with a combination of workshop co-created content, live streaming and pre-recorded footage that would then be available for later viewing and future work-shopping with smaller groups.


The event will be overseen by the AdaptWest working group and governed by the AdaptWest steering committee. The AdaptWest project management for the event will be overseen by the AdaptWest Regional Coordinator, Jeremy Miller.


Regular updates will be posted to this page and via the AdaptWest newsletter (see link to subscribe at the bottom of this page).
