This Guide, produced by Hunter Councils through the recent Regional Heatwave Resilience Project, provides support and guidance to encourage more active and collaborative planning and activity within the Hunter, Central Coast and Mid Coast region to reduce the direct and indirect impacts of heatwaves. It addresses not only short term preparation and response to individual heatwave events, but provides recommended approaches for building the long term resilience of communities to this natural hazard that is increasing in both frequency and intensity.
