The Retrofitting Cities Issues Paper summarises current definitions, opportunities, and challenges for retrofitting in Australia. It emphasises an integrated, systems approach to retrofit at several scales, which can rapidly increase the resilience and sustainability of cities. It also calls for the urgent need to reprioritise retrofitting over demolition, to mitigate and adapt to climate change and addresses a range of other environmental and social issues in Australian cities today.
