Responding to climate change: lessons from an Australian hotspot.

Collingwood: CSIRO Publishing, 2014. Octavo, paperback, BRAND NEW.

South East Queensland has been one of the fastest growing regions of Australia, both in terms of its rapidly growing population and urban sprawl. It is also one of the most vulnerable regions likely to suffer from the adverse impacts of climate change, especially increased flooding, storms, coastal erosion and drought. This book presents the results of cutting edge research from members of the Griffith Climate Change Response Program, showing how to overcome barriers to adaptation. The authors treat climate change adaptation as a cross-cutting, multi-level governance policy challenge extending across human settlements, infrastructure, ecosystems, water management, primary industries, emergency management and human health.
