Abstract Last year's flooding in Brisbane, the 2009 Victorian bushfires and impacts from Cyclone Yasi are just a few examples of recent: extreme weather events that resulted in increasingly diverse and costly threats and caused significant impacts for many businesses and disruptions to vital infrastructure. Due to climate change and the anticipated changes in trends of weather extremes, the intensity and frequency of storms, floods, and droughts may increase and requires urgent attention in political, economic and organisation-level decision-making.
