High levels of vulnerability to climate change impacts are rendering some places uninhabitable. This paper documents people’s lived experiences in two relocated communities in Fiji—Denimanu and Vunidogoloa villages—and assesses the outcomes of the relocations on those directly affected.
The powerpoint presentation gives an overview of how resilience could align with USGBC's mission. Outline of the resilience-enhancing strategies within LEED and each of GBCI's rating systems, links to USGBC resilience collateral, etc. LEED, PEER, SITES, RELi, GRESB and LEED for Cities (including STAR).

The importance of the work carried out by local communities across the globe in coastal resources and fisheries management cannot be underestimated - and communities in the Pacific islands are no exception.
Pacific island people are currently experiencing the adverse effects of climate change on their way of life. Adaptation could significantly reduce these effects.
While we are calling on all political parties to outline their policies to deliver better buildings, communities and cities, we recognise that there must be a coordinated approach from all levels of government, industry and the community if we are to achieve the best outcomes....
The issue considered by this research report revolves around the broad themes or questions such as: what are we adapting to?; who or what adapts?; and, how does adaptation occur? The challenge that these questions create is that the concept of an...
his research aimed to provide practical information about how to design communications on climate change adaptation and target these to the Australian population. This was achieved by: (1) identifying and increasing awareness of different climate change audiences in Australia, and (2) evaluating...
AbstractThe distribution of the potential benefits and costs of adapting to protect against storm surge inundation vary greatly both within and between coastal communities. This diversity is a result of physical factors, such as the risk of storm surge, sea level rise projections, and the...
AbstractThis manual provides 25 recommendations that are directed to better preparing strata titled communities for climate change. A grant received from the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Foundation supplemented by a grant received from CHU (a specialist strata title insurance company) has enabled the conduct...
When extreme weather events occur the Climate Commission is consistently asked questions about the link to climate change. This report unpacks our current knowledge about different types of extreme weather events: extreme temperatures, rainfall, drought, bushfires, storm surges, cyclones and storms.
