Climate Resilient Communities

Environment Pillar

Project Description

The Climate Resilient Communities of the Barwon South West aims to assist municipalities and key partners to begin to understand and respond to risks and opportunities presented by future climatic changes and extreme weather events.

During Phase One’s, information was gathered and high priority themes identified that require additional work to increase the understanding of resilience to climate risks and be delivered in Phase Two. These were presented in the Climate Resilient Communities of the Barwon South West – Phase 1 Report.

In Climate Resilient Communities of the BSW Regional Climate Adaption Priorities Report (2017), projects are developed and implemented that will mitigate the risks identified in Phase One.

The Project is supported by a range of partners, including Barwon Water, Wannon Water, Corangamite Catchment Management Authority, Glenelg Hopkins Catchment Management Authority, G21 Geelong Regional Alliance, Great South Coast Group, the Western Coastal Board, Powercor and VicRoads.

The project was funded with the support of the Victorian Government under the Victorian Adaptation and Sustainability Partnership, with additional funding from participating councils and partner agencies
