New modelling from our latest report, Burning Money: the rising costs of heatwaves for Western Sydney, shows heatwaves are costing households and businesses billions of dollars – and Western Sydney bears the brunt of the impact. We unpacked the report’s key insights with Sam Kernaghan, Resilience Program Director at the Committee for Sydney, and discussed solutions with a panel of sustainability, planning and climate resilience experts.
