Climate Resilient Service Delivery aims to explore the use of scenarios planning as a tool for climate change adaptation decision making, with a particular emphasis on the local provision of community services to heat vulnerable populations.
The project will be delivered
in partnership with the Western Alliance for Greenhouse Action (WAGA),
The Climate Change Exchange, and a number of councils in Greater
Climate Resilient Service Delivery is funded and supported
by the Victorian Government’s ‘Supporting Our Regions to Adapt’
strategy for the Greater Melbourne region.
- Build capacity for participants to consider the implications of
climate change for a broad range of drivers for their area of service
- Consider compound, coinciding, and ongoing risks (for
example, how summer heat, bushfire smoke haze and a pandemic might
interact, or how a power outage might function as a business continuity
risk for community support services).
- Provide a platform to
generate imaginative ideas and responses to the challenges facing
service providers and local communities across Greater Melbourne.
- A set of scenarios for participating councils to use and integrate into their own internal planning processes.
- The key learnings from Climate Resilient Service Delivery will contribute to the Greater Melbourne Regional Adaptation Strategy.
- A brief with key recommendations for climate change adaptation consideration for key service areas.
