Anne Marie came to USC after a career that spanned the university and sustainable development fields. She has worked with local governments across Australia to mitigate their greenhouse gas emissions and plan for the risks associated with climate change impacts, designing and rolling out ICLEI Oceania’s Adaptation Initiative. Prior to that she provided stakeholder engagement, Triple Bottom Line and sustainability reporting advice to public and private sector clients as the Manager, Organisational Sustainability for Futureye Pty Ltd.
Anne Marie’s research background began at World Resources Institute and has focussed on a range of sustainability issues, from establishing marine protected areas and linking reserves to form a biological corridor to examining civil society engagement in global processes to the impact of decentralisation regarding transboundary natural resource management. She has published in the areas of civil society engagement and sustainable development.
Anne Marie used these experiences to give depth to her role as a facilitator and tutor in the areas of sustainability and futures planning at the University of Queensland.
