Climate Ready Natural Resource Management Planning in Victoria

Oct 30, 2017
 
Climate Ready NRM Planning Portal

In a Victorian first, all ten Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs) have undertaken regional climate change adaptation planning which is now available through a one stop online portal.

The Climate Ready Natural Resource Management Planning in Victoria portal provides a common platform to access climate change adaptation planning for natural resource management across Victoria and was funded by the Australian Government.

Over a three year period, Victorian CMAs developed Climate Change Adaptation Plans or Strategies using the latest climate change projections by the CSIRO and other key research organisations across Australia. This project:

  • developed spatial tools to assess climate change vulnerability across the state,
  • pioneered adaptation pathways planning in the state,
  • undertook extensive engagement with the community and key stakeholders on climate change adaptation, and 
  • produced the most comprehensive natural resource management climate change adaptation planning to date in Victoria.  

The work also provided guidance on carbon farming priorities within the regions.

Wimmera CMA worked with Corangamite CMA, East Gippsland CMA, Glenelg Hopkins CMA, Goulburn Broken CMA, Mallee CMA, North Central CMA, North East CMA, Port Phillip and Westernport CMA and West Gippsland CMA on this jointly funded portal.
