Flood Risk Management Short Course on Hold
2nd July 2021
FMA has been advised by the University of Technology-Sydney (UTS) that the Flood Risk Management Short Course will not be held in 2021. Due to the pandemic UTS is reducing the number of subject offerings this year to reduce costs.
FMA President Ian Dinham said “It's rather sad as the course has been such a success story thanks to everyone who has delivered and participated in it over the last 14 years.
“Last year an on-line version of the course was successfully trialled, and since the FMA National Conference in May there has been strong interest in the course planned for this year.”
The course was originally developed by FMA and the then NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, in conjunction with and operated by UTS. The University has advised that the course will be back in Spring 2022.
Until then those interested land use planning for flood risk management may wish to consider the one-day online training program to be offered by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) on 4 November. More information is at: planning.org.au
