The Nature Conservation Council attended the Climate Change and Bushfire Roundtable hosted by Cities Power Partnership in Katoomba. This brought together local government, experts and agencies to share knowledge and effective fire management strategies to prepare for climate risk and bushfires. The key roundtable speakers included Professor Lesley Hughes (Climate Councilor and Ecologist), Greg Mullins (Climate Councilor/Former NSW Fire Commissioner), Michael Eburn (Associate Professor in Bushfire at ANU) and Tim McNaught (Director Office of Bushfire and Risk Management, Western Australia).
