We are seeking feedback on the draft guiding principles and key considerations to update the Climate Change Considerations chapter of Australian Rainfall and Runoff: A Guide to Flood Estimation.

Australian Rainfall and Runoff (ARR) outlines an approach for subject matter experts to manage the risks of increasingly intense rainfall and flooding across building and infrastructure projects, and informs design decisions to allow for flooding events. Your input will be combined with peer-reviewed science to update the Climate Change Considerations chapter.

We have developed draft guiding principles and key considerations for this update and would like feedback from engineers, government regulators, infrastructure managers, peak industry bodies and subject matter experts so that the update reflects the needs of users.

The consultation is open until Monday 19 June 2023. You will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the draft replacement Climate Change Considerations chapter later in 2023, before the document is finalised in the first quarter of 2024.

Funding for this update comes from National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA) Disaster Risk Reduction Package. To provide your feedback please visit our consultation hub.
