Climate Change Adaptation Plan
The City has shown a long-term commitment to climate change adaptation. The Climate Change Adaptation Plan, developed in 2013, identified key climate risks to the City’s services and operations and priority actions to reduce its exposure to those risks. Implementing the priority actions has helped the City to build climate resilience and be prepared for the more extreme climatic changes. Actions have included measuring and monitoring biodiversity, conserving water and energy, adjusting behaviour to avoid extreme temperatures and building infra-structure that will withstand more extreme storm and flooding events. The Plan is due for review in 2022 as part of the Sustainability Strategy development.
