Professor Hilary Bambrick

Hilary is an environmental epidemiologist and bioanthropologist researching the health impacts of global heating, especially on more vulnerable populations, and has expertise in the development, implementation and evaluation of adaptation strategies.

Hilary has consulted for the World Health Organisation and the UN on resilience and adaptation, including building resilience in national health systems in some of the least developed countries in the world. She co-developed Samoa’s climate adaptation strategy for health, and she led the health impacts assessment for Australia’s national climate change review, the Garnaut Review.

A Councillor with Australia’s independent Climate Council, Hilary contributes regularly to media and public debate, advocating for rapid and well-managed energy transition away from fossil fuels to protect global health, now and in the future.

Professor Bambrick will appear at the 2020 Communities in Control conference.
