Compound Costs: How climate change is damaging Australia's economy
THE VALUE OF Australian property is predicted to fall dramatically unless urgent steps are taken to address climate change, according to a new report from the Climate Council.
“Modelling undertaken by XDI estimates that the annual average cost of damage from extreme weather and climate hazards to properties will rise to $85 billion in 2030, $91 billion in 2050 and $117 billion in 2100″
October 2019: This report analyses climate risk to all 544 local government areas in Australia, assessing five hazards impacts to 15 million addresses.
The report names the top ten municipalities most in need of climate change adaptation according to four key indicators including annual average losses from damage and number of “High Risk Properties”, determined in line with US Federal Emergency Management Agency classifications
