Stable Landforms, Fire and Recovery Implications for the Gippsland Region webinar
GHERG held the Stable Landforms, Fire and Recovery Implications for the Gippsland Region webinar on 3 September 2020.
In Gippsland, the landscape has many uses including agriculture, forestry, and mining. To ensure the ongoing productivity of our region, we need sustainable land management practices, which will also serve the community and protect the environment. Moreover, our land management needs to consider the ever-present threat of fire and droughts, and their social, environmental and economic impacts.
Hear from three leading landform stability experts about:
- planning for the consequences of fire as a threat to our landscapes, as well as planning for landform stability and productivity
- strategies for constructing landforms for rehabilitation following mining and the use of erosion as a criteria for monitoring success of rehabilitation including agriculture
- restoration of fire-affected natural environments and the vegetation recovery potential of mine rehabilitated sites.
