Urban Climate Research

The CRC-LCL “urban micro climate” supports end user-driven research collaborations to address the major challenge of climate change facing Australia. Our researchers are dedicated to integrated building systems and engaged communities.

UCR - Project Summary

This $1.2 million research initiative aims to identify cost-effective strategies for mitigation of urban heat islands in Australian cities, initially focusing on Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne.

Australia's Urban Future

89 % of Australians live in cities and 61 % of Australians live within a radius of 75 km surrounding the five largest cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide). Urban climate science has never been more important for us.
