Thanks to everyone who participated in our climate risk stakeholder workshops as part of the Regional Climate Action Roadmap. The climate knowledge toolkit is currently being developed with more details available at the project website. A summary of the survey results are also now available on the site.
Noosa and Sunshine Coast Councils have joined forces to develop a region-wide Climate Action Roadmap.
Both Councils have done much work to address climate change impacts locally, but climate change is a much broader issue and has regional implications.
To this end, the Roadmap builds on each council’s individual preparations for extreme climate events and it will identify new opportunities to work with our businesses and communities to be future-proof and climate-ready.
Climate risk management framework for Queensland Climate Resilient Councils
Currently in Phase 1 of the risk management journey, the project is being developed with grant funding from the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) and the Queensland Climate Resilient Councils initiative.
It’s hoped that the finished Roadmap will be a model that other Queensland regions looking to prepare for climate change can follow.
Community input provided via the climate survey will help inform development of the Regional Climate Action Roadmap. Both councils will also work closely with organisations and community representatives across the Noosa and Sunshine Coast local government areas to identify important issues and determine the roles we can all play in creating a resilient future.
