One-stop shop for climate change information

Tuesday 4 April, 2017
In a Victorian first, all 10 Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs) have undertaken regional climate change adaptation planning that is now available through a one-stop online portal.

The Climate Ready Natural Resource Management Planning in Victoria portal provides a common platform to access climate change adaptation planning for natural resource management across Victoria and was funded by the Australian Government.

Goulburn Broken CMA led the work that over three-years, saw Victorian CMAs develop Climate Change Adaptation Plans or Strategies using the latest climate change projections by the CSIRO and other key research organisations.

The project:

  • developed spatial tools to assess climate change vulnerability across the state,
  • pioneered adaptation pathways planning in the state,
  • undertook extensive engagement with the community and key stakeholders on climate change adaptation, and 
  • produced the most comprehensive natural resource management climate change adaptation planning to date in Victoria.  

The work also provided guidance on carbon farming priorities within the regions.
