The Q CRC is delivering free face to face briefings and governance assessments to all Queensland local governments that apply to participate in the program.

Councils may apply for both a Face to Face briefing and a Governance Assessment at the same time.

Eligibility for a Face to Face briefing

All Queensland local governments are eligible to apply to receive a Face to Face climate change briefing.

Eligibility for a Governance Assessment

To be eligible for a free detailed Governance Assessment your council must either:

  1. Have participated in a Face to Face briefing; or
  2. Demonstrate that its current leadership already has an understanding of climate impacts and a commitment to progressing actions to build resilience.

Examples of how a council can demonstrate its current leadership’s understanding and commitment include:

  • Briefings made to council and the executive management team;
  • Development of a council policy or strategy to address climate change, future resilience or sustainability (where it includes consideration of future hazards and emissions reduction);
  • Budget allocation to implement an existing policy or strategy addressing climate change, future resilience or sustainability (where it includes consideration of future hazards and emissions reduction).
