Climate Change Risks to Coastal Buildings and Infrastructure – A Supplement to the First Pass National Assessment
In June 2011 a supplement to Climate Change Risks to Australia’s Coasts was released.
The new report Climate Change Risks to Coastal Buildings and Infrastructure presents additional data on the exposure of commercial buildings (e.g. retail precincts), light industrial buildings, and transport infrastructure (road, rail, tramways). Greater than $226 billion in coastal assets are potentially exposed to inundation and erosion hazards at a sea level rise of 1.1 metres (high end scenario for 2100).
