Maps of Sydney according to various descriptors | Image supplied. With data made available through AURIN, researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) are working to incorporate more detailed features of the built environment into existing climate models. This will provide a basis for a better understanding of how urban areas both impact […]
The Victorian Government recently announced a rental relief package to support tenants who are “experiencing rental hardship due to COVID-19” (Department of Health and Human Services, 2020). Eligible renters who are unable to afford rent, can access a one-off payment of up to $2000, with the aim of avoiding evictions during the current state of emergency. […]
