Climate Smart Engineering: engineers can transform Australia into a climate risk ready nation
CSIRO is building a national climate capability to support business and industry navigate climate change uncertainty. We want to address a key economic threat posed by a changing climate; specifically, the private sector’s inability to understand and respond to these changes, which if left unaddressed threaten the viability of our insurance, banking and superannuation systems in the next five years with direct consequences for Australian households. We want to empower Australian businesses, and the engineering know-how behind them, with the ability to navigate multiple hazards, including the increasing frequency and severity of extreme events. Through evidence-based approaches to adaptation and transition, we can develop new jobs, opportunities and a strength based view of Australia’s future.
