Climate change in a rural shire

There has been a lot of discussion about climate change recently, so we've prepared a relevant case study from our archives.

The case outlines a risk assessment that examined the effects of climate change on a rural shire in Australia. It demonstrates the use of climate scenarios, and risk assessment over short-term, medium-term and long-term time horizons.

It uses an extended risk analysis template as a continuing record of important supporting information for justifying treatment responses. Some of these may relate to risks with impacts only in the far distant future but that require action in the short term to avert problems or to build resilience.

The full case study is available here.
