Heat-related mortality tends to be associated with heatwaves that do not allow for sufficient acclimatisation to hot temperatures. In contrast, damage functions and most heatwave emergency response plans do not account for acclimatisation. Using an excess heat measure that accounts for acclimatisation, this paper produces...
To understand the implications for Australia's infrastructure, this report examines the evidence received about recent changes to the climate system, terrestrial environment and the marine environment that are relevant when considering future challenges for housing, buildings and infrastructure.
This article provides a conceptual model for the pathways by which climate change could operate to impact geographies and property markets whose inferior or superior qualities for supporting the built environment are subject to a descriptive theory known as ‘Climate Gentrification.’ The article utilizes Miami-Dade...
During a period where global fossil fuel corporations and national governments such as Australia and the US continue to avoid or delay tackling global warming, cities and local governments have been increasingly showing leadership in both mitigation of, and adaptation to, climate change (Gleeson et...
Focusing on the Australian capital region, this report argues that there is an opportunity now for regional planning that can integrate climate change adaptation, population growth, housing and infrastructure demand, services, and biodiversity conservation.
Much of New Zealand’s public wastewater and stormwater systems were not designed for the challenges climate change will bring, from sea level rises to the predicted changes in precipitation frequency and intensity.
This Brief addresses the challenges rural communities face in adapting to a variable and changing climate. It was developed through a consultation workshop in Dubbo together with extensive exchange with relevant stakeholders and experts.
These Guidelines were prepared to provide coastal transport infrastructure authorities and organisations with targeted information about climate risks for both assets and operations. The Guidelines also contain practical information pertaining to strategies and measures for building resilience of assets and operations to climate risks and...
Climate change predictions indicate more extremes in weather conditions in the coming decades with more frequent and severe heat waves in certain locations including Australia. It is likely that the more vulnerable members of the community will be at risk during heat waves in the...
