Vanora Mulvenna, is the Manager of the Climate and Health Team, Department of Health and Human Services.

Venora will be talking on Climate Change: Impact on our Community Health and our Waterways.

Vanora has a special interest and expertise in both climate change and water quality. She will provide insights into current Victorian climate change and health initiatives as well as broader efforts to improve and safeguard our natural water resources, including our bays.She has advised on a range of water policy issues, including drinking water and recycled water policy and issues related to recreational waters.

Our health is closely linked to the environment we live in, and climate change is widely regarded as the biggest threat to health in the 21st century. Climate change affects health in many ways: directly by the increased intensity and frequency of extreme weather events such as heatwaves, floods and bushfires; and indirectly through worsening air quality; changes in the spread of infectious diseases; threats to food and drinking water supplies; and effects on mental health. Climate change and other changes to our environment will continue to pose risks to the quality of our water, including the health of Port Phillip Bay.
