AECOM appoints climate resilience lead

AECOM has announced the appointment of Kaya Wilson as climate resilience lead. In this role, Wilson will assist clients in identifying, understanding and enhancing climate resilience in a complex world, focusing on national and Australian Capital Territory Government clients.

According to Richard Barrett, AECOM Chief Executive, ANZ, the company is working across many major projects to help implement tools to understand the risks and opportunities of a changing climate.

“Specialist climate-related roles will be integral as we manage the impact of climate change. Importantly, we are seeing significant action, such as a Territory-wide climate risk assessment for the Australian Capital Territory Government, and in New Zealand, the first national climate change risk assessment,” Barrett said.

Wilson’s earth science experience spans industry, academia and government sectors, including roles at Geoscience Australia and the Australian Climate Service. He holds a PhD from the University of Newcastle focused on tsunami modelling.

Wilson is also a published author, diversity and inclusion consultant, and public speaker.
