The Victorian Government is currently charged with the responsibility of managing the risks of a changing climate to assets, essential infrastructure and services such as waterways, transport systems, and our healthcare and emergency response systems through the Climate Change Act 2010 and the Victorian Climate Change Adaptation Plan. EAGA is proactively engaging with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) the other Victorian Greenhouse Alliances on the review of the Act and the implementation of the Plan.
