Draft Climate Change Adaptation Strategy

Consultation has now closed. Thank you for your feedback.

Our draft Climate Change Adaptation Strategy is now open for public comment you are encouraged to have your say on the draft strategy.

In September of 2019, a climate emergency was declared across Cardinia Shire Council.

Climate change-induced natural hazards are increasing both in magnitude and frequency, which is having adverse effects on our ecosystems, human health and economy. We are dedicated to supporting the community adapt to these climate change challenges.

The draft Climate Change Adaptation Strategy has been developed in response to previous community feedback about climate change concerns over the next 10 years. It will provide the guiding pathways to reduce the community’s vulnerability to adverse climate events and promote the resilience of social, ecological and economic systems. Adaptation planning will embed adaptive measures into our operations and processes, as well as recommend actions for the community to reduce their vulnerability to the impacts of climate change. It will bring together community and Council action to protect our natural and built environment into the future for generations to come.
