TS09E: Mapping the Surveying Profession’s Climate Impact Potential:
Commission: YSN & TF Climate
Chair: Ms. Roshni Sharma, Australia
Rapporteur: Ms. Angela Anyakora, Nigeria

An interactive joint workshop with the Young Surveyors Network and Climate Compass Task Force

Our profession is unique both in interfacing with every other sector and industry on the planet, but moreso in its unique systems-thinking approach to solving problems. This innovative and inspirational workshop will fill you with renewed hope and enthusiasm for the future using the tools and knowledges of our profession to combat an increasingly urgent global challenge that affects us all – climate change.

Join the Young Surveyors Network and Climate Compass Task Force in this workshop where we’ll leverage audience engagement to validate and map out the plethora of ways that surveyors can use our expertise and knowledges to impact management and mitigation of climate-related impacts at all scales, now and into the future (e.g. ground surveys, using spatial data for measuring carbon, wildlife, mangrove forests, watershed rehabilitation, forest fires, and community impacts).

Wednesday, 22 May, 14:30–16:00, Kundum, La Palm
