Climate & Extreme Weather Events in Australia

The Environment and Communications References Committee within Australia's Senate has just released a report representing an inquiry conducted over the past year into the Recent Trends in and Preparedness for Extreme Weather Events. The report links observed trends in Australian extreme weather events to anthropogenic climate change and discusses the the preparedness of national, state and local governments to respond to these events. Ultimately, it arrives at 10 key recommendations that largely advocate for continuation of Australia's research agencies efforts in providing and improving climate projections, stewardship and analysis of climate data, as well the pursuit of a range of risk management options from planning to insurance to vulnerability .reduction.
