Rising climate threat to Australia's coastal cities

    Description

    "We are not coping now, let alone in the future," an urban planning expert, Professor Barbara Norman of the University of Canberra, said on the ABC website.

    "Urban development continues to be approved on the coastal edge along the eastern seaboard despite the costs to communities… Better coastal planning is required to minimise risks that will only be compounded by coastal climate change impacts, such as escalating storms, coastal erosion and sea level rise."
