The separation of Australian housing production from its consumption has long-term consequences for sustainability in the built environment, and for anticipatory adaptation to climate change. This article investigates how the institutional structure of the Australian private housing development industry influences its risk profile and its...
Read the the Visions & Pathways 2040's second year project report on the potential contributions of the digital economy to low-carbon futures for Australian cities
This report is an output from a scoping study of living laboratories (RP3005: CRC Living Laboratory Framework), which examined what living labs are, their benefits and what they need to be successful. It is primarily intended to inform partners in current and prospective CRCLCL projects,...
In contrast to most economic drivers of land-use change, climate-related drivers display substantial geographic variation. Accounting for this spatial heterogeneity is important in simulations of the land-use response to climate change. I use a discrete choice model to estimate the relationship between pasture yields and...
There goes the neighbourhood , is the largest review of the financial implications of climate risk to housing in Australia.
Natural hazards that are introduced or exacerbated by climate change include coastal shifts (erosion, storm surge, inundation etc.), riverine flooding, and bushfires. These...
Ruminating on Methane. Land use will change and Someone’s gotta pay.
I use simulations from the Land Use in Rural New Zealand model to consider mitigation for different classes of sheep-beef farms under climate policy. Farmers in...
Over the past decade research on urban thermal inequity has grown, with a focus on denser built environments. In this letter we examine thermal inequity associated with climate change impacts and changes to urban form in a comparatively socio-economically disadvantaged Australian suburb. Local urban densification...
As a signatory to the Paris Climate Change Agreement, Australia has committed to reaching net zero emissions by around 2050. Australia’s built environment contributes almost a quarter of Australia’s emissions, offering a significant opportunity for emissions reduction.
The Low Carbon, High Performance report provides...
