Our plan to get climate ready

A place-based approach to adaptation

Because of the large geographical spread of the Loddon Mallee region, the unique nature of many of our communities and the vast scale of climate impacts, adaptation responses need to be tailored to local needs.

In creating a regional plan to get climate ready, ADAPT Loddon Mallee has taken a place-based, learn-by-doing approach. We wanted to empower local community members to lead adaptation activities, create partnerships and knowledge-sharing networks, and have ownership in the development and implementation of the plan.

The plan documents what we have learnt about place-based adaptation over the past two years, tells the stories of local initiatives that are supporting regional climate change adaptation, and identifies a range of key goals, objectives and priority actions for the next five years in the Loddon Mallee region. These have been developed by ADAPT Loddon Mallee in collaboration with program participants, community delegates and experts in the region.

Some of the priority actions identified in this plan can be undertaken by communities and individuals and others will require the support of different levels of government, partner agencies, financial institutions and industry.

Over the next five years, ADAPT Loddon Mallee will support the implementation of these initiatives through annual delivery plans and continue to ensure local voices are represented in planning for climate change.
