Katrina is currently working with the Climate Change Transformations research program to investigate the use of scenarios for climate change planning in the Victorian water sector.
From 2019-2020, Katrina Dunn worked as the Project Coordinator for How Well Are We Adapting a project co-designed with local governments to monitor, evaluate and report on climate change adaptation measures and responses across council services and assets.
The project and attendant tool was developed by the Western Alliance for Greenhouse Action (WAGA) Councils in partnership with RMIT University, Net Balance Foundation and Federation University Australia, with funding assistance from the Victorian Government.
Twenty Victorian councils participated in this project throughout 2018-2020, in consultation with councils across Victoria.
The project aims to:
- Build capacity for monitoring, evaluation and reporting for climate change adaptation.
- Embed climate change adaptation considerations across council service and asset portfolios.
- Enable the adaptable use of ‘How Well Are We Adapting’ by all local governments in Victoria.
- Develop indicators to encompass all areas of local government operations, services and assets.
Prior to joining RMIT University, Katrina has worked on a number of projects relating to climate change adaptation and renewable energy.
