Climate change impacts all areas of government responsibility from budget forecasting and monetary policy, to town planning, health care, housing and infrastructure.
Governments at all scales take a long-term view of risk and aim to build adaptation and resilience into all aspects of asset management, services and policy.
XDI works with government clients to inform financial management, safeguard infrastructure and understand the effects of climate change on vulnerable citizens. We have solutions for all levels of government across many different areas.

CASE STUDY: City planning - urban heat
Greater climate planning for Greater Cities
Strategic planning and risk management
Climate change affects all aspects of the economy and society. Understanding long-term physical risk to infrastructure, people and the economy is the first step to managing those risks.
Adaptation and protection of vulnerable communities
The impacts of climate change are unevenly spread, affecting some regions and communities far more severely than others. Use our data to inform the development of measures to manage risk of under-insurance and the impacts of heat and extreme weather on vulnerable communities.
The long and wide view
Governments take a longer and wider view of climate risk.
XDI works with government clients to overlay our detailed physical climate risk analytics with social and economic data to inform cost-effective risk management and adaptation solutions over the long term.
Our data enables:
- Globally comparable asset analysis for benchmarking
- Engineering-grade asset analysis to inform infrastructure and utilities investment and planning
- An understanding of how disadvantage and highly expose properties and infrastructure intersect
We’ve been around for a while - we can help!
XDI has analysed over 200,000 hospitals around the world for risk of damage from 6 different climate change hazards from 1990 until the end of the century. The risk arising from two different emissions scenarios (i) RCP 8.5 (around 4.3 ºC) and RCP 2.6 (1.8 ºC or under) was compared. The analysis was published ahead of the inaugural Health Day at the COP28 UN Climate Conference.
B.A (Jurisprudence), LLB, LLM (International Law and International Relations) Stephanie leads our engagement with the government sector, bringing 20 years of experience in climate change leadership at an international, national and state level, including senior positions in the South Australian and Victorian Governments. Her strong record in climate change policy development and program delivery includes Australia’s first climate change legislation, an innovative approach to adaptation and built form demonstration projects.
