Facilitator: Kirsty Tanner – EAQP SIG Chair
Time: 4 pm – 6 pm AEST
Globally, natural disasters have been increasing in frequency and intensity which has resulted in devastating impacts on our communities and natural environments. Last summer, Australia experienced unprecedented bushfire events which resulted in poor air quality across much of the nation for extended periods of time. The amount of scientific research linking climate change with increasingly worsening natural disasters is overwhelming. It is clear to the EAQP that the steps required to limit climate change impacts and maintain clean air are, more often than not, one and the same. This AIR-TALKS event will explore air quality impacts during extreme events, including lockdowns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, and actions to be taken to achieve progress towards climate change mitigation and clean air.
