The science behind climate change is stronger than ever. Our draft Climate Change Adaptation Plan is a five-year Plan aimed at:

  • Reducing the risk of projected climate impacts by delivering specific actions and planning measures within Council’s operational control; and
  • Enhancing community resilience and adaptive capacity before, during, and after climate events.

Based on the latest climate science projections for the region, the Plan will address four climate scenarios that have been identified as the most significant risks to Byron Shire:

  1. Flooding due to extreme rainfall
  2. Coastal storm surges due to severe storms and sea level rise
  3. Extreme heat
  4. Increased fire weather

These four scenarios are the lens through which we have developed our 100 Adaptation Actions.

The draft Climate Change Adaptation Plan has been developed in consultation with experienced local climate change experts and community organisations through a peer-review process.
