The wellbeing of all Victorians is directly connected to the health of our environment, the quality of our infrastructure and services, and the strength of our economy. Changes in our climate may put each of these things under pressure.

In 2013, the state's first comprehensive Victorian Climate Change Adaptation Plan was released. 

It sets out how the Government is managing climate risks to our natural assets, essential infrastructure and services such as our waterways, transport systems, healthcare and emergency response systems. It shows that to be most effective, climate change adaptation requires government, businesses and the community to work together.

To find out more about progress since the release of the plan, read Building a Climate Resilient Victoria – Victorian Climate Change Adaptation Progress Report.


Following the State Election held on 29 November 2014, there has been a change of Government. The website will be updated accordingly.
