Presentation Transcript

  1. Coastal adaption to climate change Community deliberations in Fremantle By Laura Stocker, Gary Burke and Janette Hartz Karp Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute L. Stocker 2009 CUSP

  2. Koora. Ye yey. Boorda. Nidja Nyungar budjar noonook nyinning • Yesterday, today and tomorrow we are sitting in Nyungar Country. L. Stocker 2009 CUSP

  3. Making Space for the Sea • 24 July 2009, ASDI and CUSP hosted a free public forum on the topic of climate change adaptation for coastal Fremantle • Aimed to engage scientists, governance and community in deep deliberation about the future of coastal Fremantle and to develop adaptive strategies in response to climate change impacts • Little action/research of this sort – mostly risk-based • Attended by 150 residents, LG officers and councillors, state government officers and other stakeholders L. Stocker 2009 CUSP

  4. Workshop: morning speakers • Aimed to enable participants to gain a solid understanding of science and governance issues • Indigenous: Greg Nannup • Science: Glen Cook (BoM), John Ruprecht (DoW), Chari Pattiaratchi (UWA) • Governance: Adele Carles (State Member for Fremantle), Charles Johnson (DoP), Jon Strachan, (Fremantle City Council), Laura Stocker (CUSP) • Deliberations about issues and questions L. Stocker 2009 CUSP

  5. Workshop: afternoon • Participants in groups of 6 around tables with an A1 physical map of Fremantle and a computer loaded with Google Earth • With help from facilitators, groups chose and discussed 5 locations in coastal Fremantle • In each location they deliberated on • Their values and uses for that place (attributes) • Their concerns about the impacts of climate change • Their ideas for adaptive strategies and actions L. Stocker 2009 CUSP

  6. L. Stocker 2009 CUSP

  7. Results • The views of each groups were place-marked in Google Earth during the course of the deliberations and saved in kmz files • Results were collected at the end of the afternoon in a common computer and discussed • At a later date, the data for all locations were pooled into a single kmz file • Kmz file mounted on CUSP website and publicly available. L. Stocker 2009 CUSP

  8. Lessons learnt and future work • Begin with deliberations about attributes to get participants talking early • Sort problems with saving complex kmz files • Incorporate basic principles into future CSIRO Coastal Governance action-research workshops • Use animation to enhance portability of science – I need you! • A big operation!
