Climate Resilience and Adaptation

Climate Resilience and Adaptation

Climate change is a prominent and important subject globally. The headline items associated with climate change are sea level rise and warmer temperatures. The reality of climate change is much bigger, complex and more challenging. Direct impacts include:

  • Ocean temperature rise
  • Sea level rise and associated tidal flooding and erosion risks
  • More frequent extreme weather events (floods, droughts, cyclones, bushfires)
  • More intense weather events
Climate change is a trend, not a one-off event nor part of a cycle. The impacts of the trend will be felt by the whole community. Foreseeable events represent a growing risk to the built environment and our community’s social and economic fabric. To help mitigate this risk, we provide services which enhance resilience by addressing the following:

  • Climate change risk
  • Infrastructure and asset planning
  • Flooding
  • Stormwater drainage
  • Water quality
  • Coastal protection and rehabilitation
  • Slope stability
  • Waste and contaminated land
  • Emergency and safety infrastructure
  • Structures
  • Durability
We work with our clients to develop climate change adaptation strategies and deliver resilient solutions for a changing climate.
