Bush Regeneration Resilience in a Changing Climate 

26-08-2022 14:23

With sequential extreme weather events and natural disasters occurring more often under climate change, the Australian Association of Bush Regenerators (AABR) believes there is a need to identify and implement project methodologies that improve the resilience of restoration sites to episodic damage — improving the capacity for post-event rapid response to not only recover project sites and prevent further degradation, but to use any opportunities that these events might present.

Peter’s presentation explores how — through integration of bush regeneration/assisted natural regeneration methodologies — sites could become more resilient to flood, fire and drought impacts; discussing opportunities to collect and share data and information on post disaster project impacts and site recovery. Then touching on the AABRs “First Aid for Burned Bushland” program, Peter explores how lessons learnt from the program could be applied to improve the recovery of sites after a range of climate events.
