This presentation will explore Australia's internet infrastructure vulnerability to climate change, chiefly to sea-level rise/storm surge and from wildfires. This is an under investigated topic in the Australasian region (and, arguably, internationally); the current research forms a baseline from existing knowledge and provides direction for future research and management actions.
