The Challenge

How do we transform existing homes to be more resilient to bushfire?

The Canberra Region Joint Organisation (CRJO) asked Edge to help them determine the current and future natural hazard adaptive capacity of the Canberra Region’s current housing, develop a change plan that supports homeowners to act and create and deploy the Canberra Region Joint Organisation Climate Resilient Housing Toolkit.​
