How can existing suburban neighbourhoods be best adapted to reduce further impacts of climate change?

23 October 2012: This report sets out that:

  • It is in suburbs that the majority of the population will be affected by climate change.
  • The impacts of these changes will be felt by people, in terms of, for example, increased heat stress and reduced comfort during hot spells,restrictions on water use, reduced air quality, and stress and costs associated with flooding and storm damage.
  • There is no clear process, or delivery mechanism,for adaptation and/or mitigation at the suburban neighbourhood scale.
