    In this week’s edition we focus on Australia, where catastrophic bushfires scorched more than 18 million hectares of land in 2020. The main causes were a drought, hot and windy weather, plus climate change. As experts say the country should expect worse in the years to come, FRANCE 24’s correspondents Richelle Harrison and Gregory Plesse take a look at how authorities are preparing. But have the lessons been learned from last year?
