The subject will introduce current practices and understanding on how the planning and design of Australian cities and regions can respond to the challenge of climate change. A focus will be on climate change scenarios and how urban and regional planning can contribute to mitigation and adaptation responses. It will examine the role of research and data collection, gathering relevant information on climate change projections, impacts, vulnerability and adaptation options.
