Australians get help adapting to climate change

Residents may be interested in news that the federal government is looking into ways to help Australians adapt to climate change.

This may be an opportune time to look into the carbon emissions your household produces. 

A collection of reports on climate change, released Friday (September 12), highlight the need for the government to take some action in regards to climate change.

The economic framework report, which is an analysis of climate change adaptation options and three associated case studies, aims to address the impact of climate change on infrastructure networks and coastal settlements.

The Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency has commissioned the reports, which were completed by global consultancy firm AECOM.

Minister for climate change and energy efficiency Greg Combet said the government wants to support Australians to adapt to global warming.

"Selecting the right timing and scale for adaptation investments is critical to achieving full value for the community, now and into the future," he added.
