This Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA) website helps Local Governments adapt to climate change. While greenhouse emissions need to be reduced, the effects of past emissions will continue to be felt well into the future. We can expect warmer temperatures, changes to rainfall patterns, rising sea levels and more extreme weather events.
This website provides a 7 step process to help Local Government managers develop a climate change adaptation strategy. Begin with an overview of the 7 step process by clicking on Adaptation Plan Checklist. We recommend you then work through each step, starting with Authority, using the information and tools provided to guide you.
