Southern Tasmanian Councils are working with the Regional Climate Change Initiative to develop a coordinated climate action plan.
The following presentation by Dr Tom Remenyi explains the climate change profiles and how councils can use them.
This work has been produced as part of the STCA Regional Climate Change Initiative.
"The Regional Climate Change Initiative (RCCI) is developing templates for individual councils that provide a coordinated and consistent climate action plan. The project leverages off existing knowledge and expertise which is tailored to suit individual council’s circumstance and community needs."
Some of the strategies being formed include a Council Climate Action Plan Template, a Coastal Hazards Strategy and a Coastal Knowledge Project which will gather coastal data from key stakeholders.
"The Regional Climate Change Initiative (RCCI) is currently preparing regional and municipal climate profiles informed by the Antarctic Climate Ecosystems CRC which are based on the Climate Futures Tasmania outputs.
The profiles will guide the preparation of the development of a regional climate strategy and identify suitable community and corporate council based adaptation actions."
Huon Valley Council's post: Climate profiles for Tasmanian municipal areas are currently being prepared by the Regional Climate Change Initiative (RCCI). These will be informed by the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystem CRC and based on the Climate Futures Tasmania outputs.
Another post with summary: "The southern councils are working with the University of Tasmania’s climate modelling team to develop council-wide climate profiles for each of the 12 southern councils. The profiles can be used by councils to help make operational and strategic decisions about climate impacts, as well as being used by the community to inform them of climate risks so they can decide how they should best respond.
