Rosie Rowe on strategic framework for climate change planning and action in a rural landscape

Abstract: This seminar will present a Strategic Framework developed by a primary health partnership in rural Australia to guide local climate change planning and action. Applying the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, it identifies actions to address the broad social and health impacts of climate change. The methodology can be applied to other areas to identify which communities, population groups or regions may be more impacted than others and hence where assistance should be directed. The seminar presents a case study into the engagement of local communities on climate adaptation, including lessons learnt. This is relevant for engaging change on other issues in conservative rural communities.
