National Climate Resilience and Adaptation Strategy released
The Australian Government recently released the National Climate Resilience and Adaptation Strategy.
The strategy was launched at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris and highlighted the adaptation and resilience-building activities developed by Australian businesses, communities and all levels of government. It also proposes a set of principles to guide future choices and includes some ideas for further enhancing the resilience of communities, businesses, biodiversity and landscapes.
The Government has established an interagency working group to consider the cross-cutting impacts of climate change and disaster risks, and to lead future consultation with business and communities about the strategy.
The National Climate Resilience and Adaptation Strategy is available on the Department of Environment website.
