July 2011

On Thursday 9th and Friday 10th June, 2011, the second round of workshops with stakeholders was held in Hobart and facilitated by John Hepper, Inspiring Place. Participants considered a draft paper of Actions/Options prepared for the Tasmanian Oil Price Vulnerability Study by Dr David Pointing, Consultant to the Study, and discussed mitigation measures to manage threats to the Tasmanian economy arising from oil price 'shocks' or prolonged steep increases in the price of oil.

Outcomes of the June 2011 Workshops and Dr David Pointing's paper, entitled Tasmanian Oil Price Vulnerability Study, Background Information, Summary Table of Mitigation Options are available at these links. Please note that any feedback on the Workshops received after the event will be included in the final Study.

The Study is focussing on mitigation strategies and will enable scenario planning.
