The project aims to enhance the resilience of emergency relief centres within the EAGA region to respond to the impacts of climate change by assessing the risks and vulnerabilities of sites and planning and prioritising targeted upgrades. The initiative covers all eight EAGA councils and seeks to build the capacity of asset and facility managers to address climate change risks in their day-to-day roles and service delivery planning.
The project methodology includes the application of the building vulnerability assessment framework, developed by EAGA and NAGA in the Future Assets Forum initiative.
The project is jointly funded through a partnership with the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP) and one of the key initiatives delivered under Greeter Melbourne’s Regional Adaptation Strategy (RAS). EAGA’s Executive Officer is on for four Local Government representatives on the stakeholder committee for the RAS.
EAGA is currently recruiting for a Resilient Assets Manager to lead the delivery of the project. Details on the role and application process can found here.
