Screen-Shot-2017-09-19-at-9

A new report by design and consultancy firm Arcadis suggested that Brisbane risks falling further behind domestic and global cities if it doesn’t address key resilience concerns.

City Resiliency: More than just a disaster 

outlined three key resilience areas that Brisbane must address and proposes solutions, including a call to protect Brisbane’s central financial and business district from flood and stormwater events with a levee system.

The three key resilience concerns raised were:

  • Storm and flood events – their regular and significant impact on the Brisbane CBD
  • Urban energy and the embedded network system – the consumer traps that are going un-noticed in new residential developments
  • Automation of Brisbane – how to begin to create a leading smart city.
