Better Approach Needed to Planning for Bushfire Risk – New Report

A report prepared by a research team at the University of Canberra has found that urban growth and the projected impacts of climate change are likely to expose more people to the risk of bushfire.

The report, titled Planning and bushfire risk in a changing climate, was prepared by a research team headed by Professor Barbara Norman, the foundation chair and head of Urban and Regional Planning at the University. Co-authors of the report were Dr Jessica Weir, Dr Kate Sullivan and Adjunct Professor Jacqui Lavis. The study was funded by a grant from the Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre.
