Webinar | The Queensland floods of 2010/2011 – reflections and regeneration

  • This event has passed.

Venue

Online – AWST

In January 2011 Queensland experienced flooding of historic proportions that impacted approximately 78% of the State. Sadly, thirty-three people died in the 2010/2011 floods and some 29 000 homes and businesses suffered some form of inundation. The scale of the disaster led to the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry. When the Commission’s final report was publicly released in March 2012, it contained a detailed examination of floodplain management, the range of responses to flood risk and how local and regional planning systems can best minimise the impact of floods. Please join us on 12 October 2021 for an online webinar that reflects on the 10 year anniversary of the Queensland floods of 2010/2011 and explores how floodplain hazard, risk management and environmental professional practices have evolved and shifted in the aftermath. Discussion will canvass regional and local snapshots, integrated natural systems thinking, a climate change lens and land use planning.
