Overview

The Victorian Government wants to help regional communities adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Supporting our Regions to Adapt is a $9.3 million program funded by the Sustainability Fund.

Each DELWP region has completed a climate change adaptation gap analysis to find out about work that has already been done across the state.

The analyses demonstrate a need for a practical climate change adaptation strategy for each region.

Each regional strategy will include adaptation responses to:

  • Preparing for more extreme heat, fire and storm events
  • Minimising health impacts on vulnerable people
  • Water supplies resilient to drought
  • Agriculture in a changing climate
  • Protecting biodiversity
  • Finance, business risk and insurability

It does not include:

  • Solar panels
  • Wind farms
  • Electric vehicles
  • And other climate change mitigation actions

The Grampians Region Climate Adaptation Strategy will be developed by the community. It will outline a shared direction and priority actions for climate change adaptation in the region.
