Anna Pannell

Anna is a highly experienced environmental scientist and project manager. She is also a highly effective communicator successfully bridging the gap between science, planning and stakeholder engagement for a wide range of strategic planning and multi-disciplinary projects.

Anna thrives on such challenges and is passionate about working with her clients to deliver projects that result in a better future for communities and the environment.

With an extensive and comprehensive understanding of climate change adaptation and mitigation planning processes, Anna has supported State and local governments across South Australia in their efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Anna is also skilled in the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), finding meaning in spatial and non-spatial data for a wide range of projects and presenting it in ways that best inform decision making.
