In 2015, the Queensland Government committed to developing and implementing a Queensland Climate Adaptation Strategy to address risks to our economy, environment, infrastructure and communities from current and future climate impacts. The Queensland Government is investing $3 million over three years to support the development and implementation of a Queensland Climate Adaptation Strategy to improve opportunities and reduce risks to our economy, environment, infrastructure and communities from current and future climate impacts. The Queensland Government has released the Queensland Climate Adaptation Directions Statement which provides the full directions for developing a comprehensive climate adaptation strategy for the state.

Key Takeaways:

  • Queensland is no stranger to volatile and extreme weather conditions, floods, heat waves or bushfires.
  • However climate change is expected to amplify the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  • Scientists warn that Queensland will increasingly be affected by changes in temperature, rainfall, sea level rise and extreme weather events. With this knowledge, it makes good social and economic sense to take action sooner rather than later and better manage our climate risks.
