Climate Change is a complex issue.
There is a general acceptance that there is an increase in global average temperatures.
These increased temperature are projected to result in drier conditions across North East Victoria along with moderate decreases in rain.
The Council’s vision for Wodonga “Our people, our city, our future” will be challenged by the expected impacts of climate change.
To assist in fulfilling the council’s mission to strengthen our community in all that we do, the council is seeking to:
- Embed the climate change lens into all operational and strategic policy and decision making
- Increase the resilience of Council’s infrastructure and service delivery by building internal capacity to absorb, adapt and adjust to the expected shocks of climate change, and;
- Promote co-operative partnerships with neighbouring councils to facilitate adaptation.
