Rob Waterworth

The Mullion Group
Canberra, Australia
Rob has extensive experience and expertise in research, designing and implementing technical systems, policy support, program management and international negotiations. Having worked for universities, as a consultant and for State and Federal Governments, he has a deep understanding of the requirements of and relationships between policy, technical systems and the role of research and programs to deliver systems that meet policy needs. Rob is currently leading the development of new international MRV tools for forestry and agriculture. These tools are designed to maximise the utility of remote sensing data and improve the accessibility and quality of data to support policy. Rob has authored several papers on monitoring systems and in 2007 was part of the team awarded the Eureka Prize, Australia’s premier science prize, for work in developing integrated remote sensing and ground data systems.

Keen to discuss the following issues at the summit:
- National systems implementation
- Working with Government on environmental information
- Emissions estimation and the land sector
- Remote sensing and operational systems
- Application of open source concepts for science and government software
