The Victorian Government is committed to positioning Victoria as a leader in climate change, by mitigating risks, reducing emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change.

The Victorian Government's is reinvigorating climate change action within the state, working across state government and with local governments, businesses and the community to develop effective climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies to transition to a sustainable future.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is leading the charge for the Victorian Government. DELWP will partner with Sustainability Victoria, whose new role in helping communities respond to climate change will be a critical contribution to addressing and minimising the effects of climate change on our environment, community and economy.

The independent review of the Climate Change Act 2010 is a significant step towards restoring Victoria's status as a leader and model for other governments in tackling climate change. Additionally, the latest climate change science will be used to identify issues for Victoria and strengthen the state government's climate change response.

Information about climate change science can be found on the Climate Change in Australia website.
