journal contributionposted on 2023-05-17, 19:58 authored by Foerster, AC, Macintosh, A, Janet McDonaldJanet McDonald
Climate change is predicted to exacerbate and alter the frequency, severity and distribution of many natural hazards in Australia, including bushfire and coastal hazards. Land-use planning is widely recognised as a critical tool for reducing the vulnerability of settlements and infrastructure to such hazards. In Australia, legal and policy frameworks for land-use panning have been the subject of much scrutiny and reform effort in recent years to respond to potential climate change impacts. This article compares and contrasts the approach taken to these two different hazards, as well as the approaches taken by different State and Territory jurisdictions and local governments.
