If you’ve got a question about climate change and increasing bushfire risk, you’ve come to the right place. On this page you’ll find all of the Climate Council’s key bushfire resources, including explainers, info guides and reports.

The nature of bushfires in Australia is changing: climate change is making bushfires worse, more frequent and more dangerous. The risk to people and property has increased, and emergency services are struggling to cope. Plus, overlapping fire seasons between the northern and southern hemispheres makes the regular exchange of personnel and specialist equipment difficult.

Make sure you equip yourself with the best science available, which we’ve compiled on this handy page, and above all stay safe, keep up to date on local conditions and heed the advice of emergency services.
