Abstract
As the climate changes, average temperatures are increasing worldwide. Darwin is a hot and humid tropical city which is expected to experience more extremely hot days in the future. This affects the wellbeing of its residents and the strength of its economy. Heat adaptation planning is needed for the future and it starts with understanding how people are affected and how they cope with heat. At the Northern Institute we have a long history of evidence-based social research on the economic and social implications of heat and this seminar will present findings of our research on impacts, coping and heat related mobility.

Whether you are city-based, regional, remote or studying outside of Australia the Virtual Coffee Shop provides a platform to interact with like-minded research students to gain support, valuable advice or just a sympathetic ear. Grab a coffee and talk all things HDR with the ones who truly understand – your peers. Virtual coffee shop is held the last Wednesday of the month 3.00-4.00pm (ACST). Hosted by Professor Helen Verran.
