About the event

Professor Rory Nathan will present research on “Climate change impacts on floods and droughts: implications for water managers” in this interactive one-hour breakfast workshop. VinZero is launching a series of conversations on the application of technology solutions and innovations in planning for water resilience and sustainable development with this first conversation hosted by Mick Liubinskas, Keynote Speaker from the Oz Water conference.

You or a delegate of your choice are invited to join us as a valued Thought Leader and to participate in this important conversation as we collaborate to support SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities) and SDG 13 (climate action).

Professor Rory Nathan

Professor Rory Nathan is a hydrologist with 40 years’ experience largely in the consulting and public sectors. For the past eight years he has divided his time between research into the impacts of climate change on floods and the environment, private consulting, and on expert review and advisory roles for the federal government. He is a co-editor of Australian Rainfall and Runoff (the national guidelines on flood estimation) and is currently assisting its revision to better incorporate climate change guidance. He has published almost 300 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings on engineering and environmental hydrology. In 2000 he was recognised as national “Civil Engineer of the Year” by Engineers Australia, and as the 2018 Munro Orator he is recognised as being one of Australia’s most influential engineers eminent in the field of water resources.
