The collapse of ecosystems due to biodiversity loss are major risks to businesses and to society.

About this Event

Australian landscapes are shaped by extremes, including severe droughts, bushfires, floods, and heat waves. These climate extremes and system shocks are intensifying, posing severe risks to our ecosystems, health, landscape productivity and economy. Understanding the importance of natural systems and their integrity for our prosperity and wellbeing can help inform better decisions for mitigating risk and investing in natural assets and ecosystem resilience, to deliver benefit to our communities and our economy.
