Coming Ready or Not Report

Oct 29, 2012 - 4:06pm

Australia's climate is highly variable and predisposed toward extreme weather events. Most of the country’s population lives in coastal cities exposed to rising sea levels and connected by infrastructure exposed to the full range of weather conditions. Climate change will have direct economic costs for Australia that need to be managed.

Coming Ready or Not synthesizes research on the physical impacts and flow-on consequences of climate change on major infrastructure, such as electricity networks, rail and road, property and water supply. It analyses preparations in Australia among owners and operators of major infrastructure assets and highlights contrasting approaches.
