dc.description.abstractRising sea levels, heat waves, bush fires, cyclones, droughts and floods present a growing threat to Australian settlements. Policy responses to these climate change driven concerns are polarized. The two main political parties at the federal level display starkly different perspectives on approaches to greenhouse gas reduction. This paper examines the characteristics of Australian cities in the light of a changing climate. It discusses government actions at federal, state and local levels, contrasting top-down, mitigation driven concerns with more bottom-up, adaptation focused responses. Climate driven research, policy and action are examined to address questions of urban resilience. The paper asks whether the historic land-use patterns of Australian cities and the behaviours of their residents represent ingrained characteristics that pose major obstacles to appropriate adaptation.en
