Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap

The EAGA Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap is a key strategic document guiding adaptation projects and initiatives across the region. Partially funded by the Victorian State Government, the Roadmap aims to raise awareness, build capacity and identify regional opportunities for addressing climate risks to Council assets, operations and services.

Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap – Update 2022

In 2022, EAGA conducted a refresh of the Roadmap to bring it into line with the existing science on climate change. As the planet continues to warm from increasing greenhouse gas emissions, the frequency, severity and intensity of extreme weather events continues to rise, along with the associated risks associated with those events. To ensure the Roadmap is up to date and relevant, EAGA updated the Roadmap to reflect the current science and to ensure our risk management approach continues to meet best-practice.

Regional risk assessment

The project involved the delivery of 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, and remain relevant for the updated Roadmap. For more detailed information on risks to each service area, click on one of the links below:
