Victoria's Climate Change Adaptation Plan 2017-2020, tabled in Parliament on 8 February by Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D'Ambrosio, lays out the priorities for the next four years to manage current impacts and prepare for the long-term risks of climate change.

Victoria's Climate Change Adaptation Plan 2017-2020 [PDF File - 5.1 MB] lays out the government's plan of  action for the next four years, to help Victorians meet the challenges and act on the opportunities of climate change.

The Adaptation Plan will:

  • build a detailed understanding of Victoria's exposure to climate change risks and impacts
  • catalyse partnerships for integrated and effective responses to climate change
  • tackle immediate priorities to reduce climate change risks

It will help us all play our part and work together to achieve our vision for Victoria of a thriving natural environment and a healthy, prosperous, safe and vibrant place to work and live for all Victorians, and for the thousands of visitors we welcome each year.
