Victorian councils face a range of challenges when managing climate-related risks. Councils are at different stages in their climate adaptation journey and require focused support to prepare and implement climate change adaptation planning and projects.
We’re working with councils to build their capacity and planning in the areas of emergency management, social and community services, planning and building, infrastructure and environment.
Our work in assisting councils to manage and reduce carbon emissions focuses on reporting, management, carbon price costs and energy-efficient public lighting.
Victorian councils are also supported through regional greenhouse alliances, which now cover much of Victoria. Membership of greenhouse alliances can include councils, business and community groups.
