Abstract
The Northern Territory has proven to be one of the safest places in Australia and the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. This wasn’t just luck however, with over 100 cases moving across the NT’s airports, quarantine facilities, health services and pathology laboratories it has been a multidisciplinary and well-structured pandemic response keeping communities safe. In this seminar we meet Angela Sheedy who has been working as the COVID-19 Emergency Response Workforce Educator for the Department of Health. Angela presents an overview of the diverse and innovative core responses formed as part of the NT COVID-19 pandemic response.

The Savanna Monitoring and Evaluation Reporting Framework (SMERF)Presented by: Dr Andrew EdwardsDarwin Centre for Bushfire ResearchScreen shot of the Savanna Monitoring and Evaluation Reporting Framework (SMERF). Photo credit Andrew Edwards.

The Savana Monitoring and Evaluation Reporting Framework (SMERF) has grown out of the need of fire managers, mostly Indigenous, across northern Australia, to remotely assess and score the effects of improved fire management in Australia's tropical savannas. SMERF uses the highly accurate moderate resolution burnt area mapping derived for the North Australia Fire Information (NAFI) web portal and the Commonwealth Government’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Abatement Program (known as Savanna Burning) to derive fire metrics that best assess the outcomes of Savanna Burning. As the climate, topographic and desired outcomes vary from place to place, so too should the fire metrics and their thresholds. The SMERF team have been working with Indigenous and Conservation groups, but most recently with Parks & Wildlife NT to derive sub-property fire community mapping and thresholds based on their Park-level Integrated Conservation Strategies. This presentation will take you through the past and potential development of SMERF, and invite you to provide feedback to improve it further.

Dr Andrew Edwards is a Fire Ecologist and Spatial Scientist. Andrew has worked in Bushfire Research since the mid-90’s after graduating from the Northern Territory University with a Bachelor of Science (Earth Science). He first worked for Parks & Wildlife NT as their GIS support officer, was seconded to Bushfires NT to work on the West Arnhem Land Fire Abatement project and various other mapping and monitoring projects such as NAFI, including working with the Savanna Burning methods development team. Andrew was then seconded to Charles Darwin University in 2013 joining the newly formed Darwin Centre for Bushfire Research where he has continued similar projects, such as SMERF.
