6th December 2017
FMA Land Use Planning Director Paul Grech and Queensland Director Dwayne Honor have provided evidence to the Senate Inquiry into the current and future impacts of climate change on housing, buildings and infrastructure, at the public hearing in Sydney on 23 November.
The Inquiry is being conducted by the Senate’s Environment and Communications References Committee.
FMA’s submission to the Inquiry was prepared by Mr Grech in August, and is available at the Submissions page.
Issues discussed at the hearing included the prevalence of adaptation measures, barriers to implementation, and benefits of pre-disaster mitigation.
The Committee has asked to be advised of examples of mitigation measures which could be visited and looked at in detail as case studies.
