Description

Interview with Professor Anas Ghadouani, University of WA. Shand asks listeners how they will beat the heat as a heatwave

sets in for the next week or so. Ghadouani says they have developed a map which colour codes Perth suburbs depending on

how vulnerable they are to the heat. Ghadouani says you can reduce the heat by up to 10 degrees with correct street design

and using plants and trees. Ghadouani says heatwaves kill people, particularly the vulnerable, those who are sick and elderly.

Shand says climate change will force people to reconsider how suburbs are developed to mitigate the impact of heatwaves.
