IPCS Projects for Coexistence: The Future of Food

The first in a series of four panel discussions associated with a new IPCS research project, the Future of Food.

In this discussion experienced Indigenous fire ecologists and land managers from the south and the north join an international-renowned pyrogeographer to reflect upon Australia’s recent catastrophic fire season. They explore the devastating impact of the fires on Aboriginal land and heritage, the likely future risks to Australia’s existing modes of food production, and talk about the differences the deployment of customary burning regimes might make to mitigating such risks.

The Future of Fire is supported by the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
