Description

Please be advised that this event is being rescheduled for November. Tentative Date

Green Cross Australia's Business Adaptation Network is facilitating a discussion on climate risk, insurability and long term home ownership.

These issues contribute to what has been identified as a key market failure in the Australian housing market that leads to long-term housing unaffordability and lack of resilience in Australian housing stock.

Using the hypothetical scenario of a housing development, the discussion will explore such issues as:

- The need to better understand climate risk, insurability and the implications for long-term home ownership,

- The nexus between affordable house prices and insurability, long-term resilience for homes and actual whole-of-ownership-life costs, and

- Establishing a dialogue on how insurability and resilience can be optimised.

The session is based on the central theme that existing practices must change if resilient development is to be undertaken in the face of a changing climate.

Panellists include experts from State Government, the Local Government Association of Queensland, QUT, Climate Risk and the Insurance Council of Australia.
