Education for climate change adaptation in the built environment sector
ARIES was funded by the Australian Government Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts (DEWHA) to engage with professional accrediting institutions in the fields of engineering, planning, landscape architecture and architecture to investigate opportunities to strengthen effective professional education in climate change adaptation. The project is now complete and a public document, which reports on the significant findings, outcomes and recommendations of the project, is now available.
A direct outcome of the project was an announcement by the then Federal Minister for the Environment, Malcolm Turnbull, of a $2 million grants program to facilitate the integration of climate change adaptation into education and training for professionals. The grants program is administered by the Australian Greenhouse Office within the Australian Government Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts.
