Adapting the Community Sector for Climate Extremes
Short Summary of Resource
A comprehensive and critical scoping, examination and review of existing research findings and an audit, examination and judgment-based evaluation of the current vulnerabilities and capacities of community service organisations (CSOs) under projected climate change scenarios
Detailed description of the resource
This report examines the relationship between physical and social infrastructure (in the form of CSOs service provision). Specifically, the ways in which the climate-driven failure of CSO service delivery worsens risks to the individuals and communities they serve and, on the other hand, how preparedness may reduce vulnerability to climate change and extreme weather impacts to human settlements and infrastructure.
