Becoming a carbon neutral and climate resilient region

Our climate is getting hotter and drier with substantial decline in spring rainfall and more extreme events, such as storms, heatwaves and fires. Our challenge is to build the resilience of our ecosystems, communities and businesses to survive and adapt to future climate changes. It is also to reduce carbon emissions so that the climate does not become even more extreme here, and around the world.

Meeting these challenges will require ways of living and producing that simultaneously restore natural systems, mitigate emissions and build long-term resilience.

Our role:

  • Promote a transition to net zero carbon emissions.
  • Help build the climate resilience of our ecosystems, community and agriculture.
