Summary

"In 2007, Council released a climate change report documenting its research into how local and global climate projections may affect Ku-ring-gai. The report showed Ku-ring-gai could potentially experience increased frequency and severity of storms, bushfire, heat waves and drought. In response to these findings, Council held a Climate Change Risk Workshop in 2008 with key members of the community, emergency services and climate scientists, leading to the formulation of a research partnership between Council, Macquarie and Bond Universities, to develop a comprehensive economic analysis of climate change risk and adaptation for Ku-ring-gai. The project was led by Nobel Peace Prize winner, Professor Anne Henderson-sellers, and produced the Economic Evaluation of Climate Change Adaptations Report."--Ku-ring-gai Council's website.
