Over the past 20 years, Melbourne has experienced many climate events that have an effect on our community. These events give an indication of what might be in-store for us in the future. With climate change it is likely that these events will occur with greater frequency and intensity.

Adaptation strengthens our ability maintain the things we value and love about our city. By refreshing our Climate Change Adaptation Strategy 2009, we aim to provide direction for how we plan, prepare and respond to ensure that the city can survive and thrive as the climate changes.
