Abstract: This report explores the relationship between climate change and liveability in remote Australia. The term ‘liveability’ here describes the state of wellbeing realised by the sum of interactions between the physical and social environment, with health and infrastructure as the primary focus. Vulnerability to climate change is the degree to which a population is susceptible to, or unable to cope with, the adverse effects of climate change. Variations in pre-existing health, socio-economic status, geographical location, social capacity, infrastructure and demographic attributes mean that particular groups of people are likely to be more affected than others.
