Summary
South East Queensland has been one of the fastestgrowing regions of Australia, both in terms of itsrapidly growing population and an ever-expandingbuilt environment. It is also one of the mostvulnerable regions likely to suffer from the adverseimpacts of climate change, especially increasedflooding, storms, coastal erosion and drought.Responding to Climate Change: Lessons from anAustralian Hotspot brings together the results ofcutting edge research from members of the GriffithClimate Change Response Program, showing howbest to respond to anticipated changes and how toovercome barriers to adaptation
