Socio-cultural reflections on heat in Australia with implications for health and climate change adaptation

24 Sep 2012
Description

The paper explores ways in which vulnerable sub-populations adapt their personal behaviour to cope with heat.
It draws upon scientific, historical and literary sources and on a set of repeat interviews in the suburbs of Western Sydney with eight older participants and two focus group discussions. 
The paper finds that while a number of methods are employed by older people to stay cool, these may become limited in the future.
