The Federal Government is inviting local governments to provide feedback on its National Adaptation Plan Issues Paper, which looks to ensure that Australia is as prepared as possible for the increasing risks presented by climate change.

The Plan will form a blueprint for adapting to nationally significant climate risks, and is based on world-class science of the National Climate Risk Assessment and on extensive consultation.

The Federal Government has said that an investment of $28 million over two years will deliver the National Climate Adaptation and Risk Program, including Australia’s first National Climate Risk Assessment, and the National Adaptation Plan. 

The Plan will be the blueprint for adapting to nationally significant climate risks. Importantly, the Plan will be based on both the world-class science of the National Climate Risk Assessment and on extensive consultation.

The newly released Issues Paper will be used to:

  • Seek input on key design questions for the plan, including duration and scope and the approach to measurement and implementation 
  • Seek input on priorities for strengthening adaptation action in Australia
  • Serve an educational function on climate adaptation
  • Outline key messages concerning Federal Government adaptation policy and the plan

The consultation closes on 11 April 2024. To take part, visit consult.dcceew.gov.au
