The presentation will discuss a number of key findings from a three year study into climate change adaptation for Human Settlements in South East Queensland. It will examined the sectors of urban planning and management, physical infrastructure for local government, coastal management, emergency management and human health. It will examine what should be done now to better prepare a number of human settlement types for future occurrences of natural hazards, These settlement types include: a beach front tourist location; a canal estate; a town centre; a middle suburb; a peri-urban community and a greenfield new town development. What should be the response from state and local government, and what can individual residents do to prepare their settlements for the “Next Big One”?
