Council plans for climate change

SHOALHAVEN City Council recently endorsed the Shoalhaven Adaptation Plan, a tool designed to increase the area’s resilience and respond to the uncertainty created by the effects of global warming.Dealing purely with council operations, the document explores strategic opportunities to make the organisation more resilient to these changes following the findings of an organisational climate change risk management assessment.Director of Strategic Planning and Infrastructure Peter Adams said the Adaptation Plan illustrated council’s ability to deal with both uncertainty and risk.“Further to this, the plan identifies further strategies and objectives designed to save energy, water and protect the area’s biodiversity into the future.”The Shoalhaven Adaptation Plan is available for viewing on council’s website, www.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au.This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.
