Patrick Crittenden presented a case study which highlighted the recent economic impacts of severe weather events in Australia. He also provided practical insights into the risk management and planning strategies that the real estate community and other stakeholders are implementing in order to build adaptive capacity and resilience in the face of climate change related weather events.
