Climate Change Adaptation Action Plans
A major step forward, comprehensive and collaborative.
The Built Environment Climate Change Adaptation Action Plan 2022-2026 is one of seven adaptation action plans for Victoria.
The plans are built environment, education and training, health and human services, natural environment, primary production, transport, and water cycle systems.
Built Environment Adaptation Action Plan
The built environment adaptation action plan:
- Supports highly exposed Victorian cities, towns, suburbs and regional areas to tackle overlapping climate-related events through resilience and recovery planning that considers all hazards.
- Focuses on making our built environment throughout our cities, towns and regional areas more resilient to climate impacts like bushfires, heatwaves, drought, storm events and intense rainfall.
- Improves the resilience of our homes and buildings, cultural heritage places, public parks and sports fields, including our energy infrastructure and systems.
Implementation 2022 to 2026
The plan is the first of a series of 5-year plans up to 2050. Subsequent 5-year plans will follow.
When implementing the plan, Government will partner with human services, government agencies and highly exposed communities to better manage the risks of climate impacts such as bushfire, extreme heat, reduced run-off, sea level rise, flash flooding, extreme wind and hail and landslides.
