IAN is back in Australia
In early February, Bill Dennison, Alex Fries, and Heath Kelsey traveled to Australia for a series of project workshops. Bill and Heath were in Townsville for the second Great Barrier Reef Climate Change Resilience Index workshop
. IAN was tasked with facilitating a workshop to coordinate a team of investigators to develop a climate change resilience index from a series of indicators. Alex then joined Heath in Adelaide for a science communication course
focusing on Report Cards. The course was designed as a series of intermediate level modules for the South Australia Government who have been preparing various regional environmental report cards. Finally, Heath and Alex continued to Gladstone to facilitate a meeting to develop the first Gladstone Harbour Report Card. All meetings went well, and provided great opportunities for ongoing interaction on a variety of issues.
