The ABCB, through the ABCB Office, is participating in a Global Resiliency Dialogue with counterpart organisations in Canada, New Zealand and the United States (CANZUS). This joint initiative aims to help inform the development of building codes that draw on both building science and climate science. The goal is to improve the resilience of buildings and communities from the intensifying risks of weather-related natural hazards.

A report on the current integration of climate data and assessment of extreme weather events in building codes around the world has been published, arising from initial work of the group. The report provides the findings of a survey undertaken by the core members of the Global Resiliency Dialogue, with participation from several other countries. The survey results are available for downloading here.
