From Global Voices Policy Fellow: Report from Egypt COP27


Elly Hanrahan is a Healesville local who has spent the past 5 years working for DELWP as a forest firefighter and Project Officer. She has a bachelor's degree in environmental science with honours in global challenges and has worked/volunteered for environmental organisations since she was a teen. This year she supervised a research partnership between DELWP and Monash University investigating the implementation of rehydration methodologies on public land; a concept she was introduced to after looking for practical on-ground measures that could prevent further instances of the black summer fires. She incorporated the findings from this research into a policy proposal submitted to the Global Voices fellowship program which was ultimately successful and saw her recent participation in the COP27 in Egypt. As a Global Voices Fellow, she was part of Australia’s contingent, and will give us an inside view: the good and the bad. She will discuss policy, Australia’s performance, and where we should go from here. There will be ample time for discussion, and for questions from the audience.
