Stephen Martin - 2019 Conference Abstract

Title: Right of Way Management - Insights from the International Symposium, Denver

The 12th International Symposium on Right of Way Management was held in September2018 with more than 400 delegates from around the world, discussing environmental matters of interest.  The focus of the symposium is to bring scientists and network businesses together to offer solutions to environmental matters, providing a positive and constructive environment for real improvements to be made.

The 12th symposium included a range of field trip options along with 3 days of presentations and plenary sessions that covered streams that held appeal to scientists, managers, engineers, arborists and social scientists.  Stephen presented two papers: one on biosecurity management and one on adapting to challenges for transmission land assets in Australia.  Both papers were well received with good engagement during and after the sessions.  It highlighted that Australia’s right of way management is considering environmental concerns and applying real solutions to mitigate impacts.

The process for submitting papers is all on-line with milestones well managed by the organisers.  Papers are peer reviewed before and after the symposium, which is an interesting approach, but allows the steering committee the ability to understand content in more depth after presentations.

The networking opportunities both formal and informal were invaluable, providing an insight into the differences and similarities that exist globally in right of way management.  The 13th symposium will be held in Charlotte (North Carolina) in 2020 and it would be great for Australia to be represented on the program again.
