Australia: Adaptation and planning strategies to mitigate the impact of climate change induced sea level rise, flooding and erosion

Source(s):  AECOM
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)

Since 2010, AECOM (provider of services for infrastructure projects) has assisted the Australian Department of Defence with understanding risks to its assets due to climate change‐induced disasters across Australia. The process involved a risk assessment and prioritisation of sites, followed by detailed site asssessments.

Three key lessons are identified in this publication:

  • The value of a staged approach to ensure resources are targeted to priority sites of greater risk.
  • The benefit of generating, with project stakeholders, a Site Assessment Methodology and Framework, tailored to specific project needs.
  • The importance of tailoring information to user needs. For instance, to support ongoing internal communication, a suite of products/reports were developed.

This case study is one of a series produced by members of ARISE, the UNISDR Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies.
