The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation predicts Sydney’s climate to resemble Grafton’s by 2050. The project aligns with the city’s ambitious goals of achieving net-zero emissions by 2035 and increasing tree canopy cover to 27% and green cover to 40% by 2050. The findings are anticipated in September 2024.
The study will map air temperatures throughout the summer while investigating the thermal performance of assets like trees and parks.
