Land Resilience Project to Host Dedicated Stream in Upcoming Smart Sustainable Futures Symposium in Melbourne

In September 24-26, the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration (CSDILA) and Centre for Disaster Management and Public safety (CDMPS) will host an International Symposium on Smart Sustainable Futures in Melbourne, sponsored by the World Bank Group and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Resilience (GFDRR).
Within the event there will be a dedicated Land Resilience stream focusing on the current World Bank project on Improving the Resilience and Resilience Impact of National Land and Geospatial Systems. The World Bank Land Resilience stream will combine the theme of smart sustainable futures with the topic of land resilience and will explore how national land and geospatial systems could improve resilience to disasters and contribute to the goals of achieving a smart sustainable future.
The stream will meld presentation sessions on selected case countries with discussion sessions focused on the development of a strategic roadmap and individual country action plans. Panel and roundtable discussions on the developed items outputs will take place offering a chance for feedback and insight into the final Flagship report on this topic as well as exploration of the role, relevance and contributions of national land and geospatial systems in the areas of resilience, disaster risk management and land management, at local and global scales.
