Released for user testing
Councils have always had a role in managing risks within their boundaries. Proactive action and the ability to demonstrate how a local government area is considering and acting to mitigate and/or take advantage of changing risk is increasingly important.
The Climate Risk Management Framework for Local Government in Queensland aims to encourage logical, defensible and effective actions that can minimise the overall cost of reducing the potential impact of all current and future climate risk within a Local Government Area (LGA).
By using this framework and its companion volume Climate Risk Management Guideline for Queensland Local Government, local governments will be following leading international and national processes and practices.
The advice of key local government and State agency stakeholders means the framework and guideline are tailored for Queensland local government.
TESTING THE FRAMEWORK AND GUIDELINE
The Climate Risk Management Framework for Local Government in Queensland and companion guideline have been released for user testing for a 12 month period.
During this time, the LGAQ is seeking feedback from councils on the value of the approach and content of the documents.
Additionally, the program is making 2 grants available to fund a council or group of councils to apply the process and guidance in the documents to prepare a local government area Climate Risk Management Strategy (Phase 1: Strategic Direction Setting, Steps 1 & 2).
