Question Without Notice No. 186 asked in the Legislative Council on 28 March 2018 by Hon Tim Clifford

Minister responding: Hon S.N. Dawson
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 28 March 2018

      186. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Minister for Environment:
The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility is conducting the sixth climate adaptation conference in May. The conference, sponsored by the Victorian state government, brings together practitioners from across Australia to share experiences and showcase activities, strategies and research on climate change. Will the government be supporting any of the 3.6 full-time equivalent staff members from the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation to attend this important conference?
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation's climate change unit now has six full-time positions, overseen by a director and an executive director. Two climate change unit staff will attend this year's national climate adaptation conference.
