ADAPTING THE CORANGAMITE REGION FOR CLIMATE CHANGE

The Corangamite Natural Resource Management Plan for Climate Change provides the background, current information and detailed process required to enable the impact of climate change to be considered in managing our natural assets. The plan provides information to help guide adaptation and mitigation actions, as well as help identify priority landscapes for carbon sequestration.

The Corangamite CMA has worked in consultation with a range of stakeholders to develop the Corangamite Natural Resource Management Plan for Climate Change. It provides direction for managing the impacts of climate change on the region's natural assets


The plan:

  • provides regional information on the predicted change in climate and its likely impact on the region's natural assets
  • provides guidance on developing adaptation and mitigation actions to address the impact of climate change on the region's natural ecosystmes
  • identifies priority landscapes for carbon plantings and other carbon sequestration methods, as well as strategies to build landscape integrity
  • provides guidance on regional decision making, community engagement and research needs, to improve community understanding of the impact of climate change on natural assets.

HOW CAN I ACCESS RELEVANT CLIMATE CHANGE INFORMATION IN THE FUTURE

A key output of this project is a readily accessible web portal that hosts the plan and other key climate change information, that can be regularly updated as new information becomes available.


The South West Climate Change Portal (available by clicking on the image to the left) provides community groups and stakeholders the ability to plan and develop projects based on current climate change information.
