Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap


EAGA has recently developed a Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap for decision makers in Melbourne’s east. The project aims to raise awareness, build capacity and identify regional opportunities for addressing climate risks to Council assets, operations and service delivery responsibilities. The project receives funding from the Victorian State Government.

In August this year, EAGA delivered a regional risk assessment that identified 70 priority risks to local government arising from climate change. These risks are diverse and affect every aspect of Council. For more detailed information on risks to each service area, click on one of the links below:
