Future climate change will affect local government through decreased rainfall, heatwaves in summer and increased severity and frequency of floods, storms, storm surges and bushfires.
These events are likely to impact directly and indirectly on residents, businesses and visitors throughout the City of Greater Geelong.
They will likely have consequences for Council's services including infrastructure provision, recreation, health, planning, natural resource management and water services.
The City of Greater Geelong Climate Change Adaptation Strategy assists Council to develop responses that remain viable under the widest range of possible climate futures.
The Strategy contains 7 priority work areas, including coastal planning, asset management and vulnerable sectors of the community.
