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 CRJO Climate Resilient Housing Toolkit.
This project focused on assessing and building the bushfire resilience of different dwelling types in communities across the region. Our approach included behavioural change, human centred design, research and stakeholder engagement and communications collateral. We helped CRJO engage regional stakeholders in the consolidation and development of a Climate Resilient Housing toolkit that amplifies, enables, and informs residents, councils, and industry to act and adapt to natural hazards, in a way that is complimentary to existing initiatives and services.
Edge Environment has become a trusted partner of the Canberra Region Joint Organisation (CRJO) through the successful delivery of the Climate Resilient Homes Toolkit project. The project delivers clear guidance to homeowners, councils, and industry on how to prioritise activities and investments which increase the resilience of the community to future bushfire impacts.
