Climate Change Adaptation Plan directions paper

Property Council provided feedback to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning on Victoria’s Climate Change Adaptation Plan directions paper.

The directions paper sought feedback on the proposed vision, goals, principles and action areas to be included in the Adaptation Plan, which will be published in early 2017.

Outlined in the paper are six particular areas of focus:

  • People and Community
  • Environment and livelihoods
  • Built infrastructure
  • Knowledge creation
  • Governance and strategic planning
  • Sustainable finance

In our feedback, we noted that the concept of built environment needed to be better defined and clarified to help position the property industry's role in addressing climate change.
