Regional Councils Climate Adaptation Project


We are collaborating with the southern Tasmania councils to drive climate action across our communities and businesses. We are working collectively to support actions in the transition to a low carbon society and to manage climate risks and hazards across council owned assets and operations, and our communities.

The City of Hobart led the Regional Councils Climate Adaptation Project. Through this project, corporate climate adaptation plans were developed for each of the 12 southern Tasmanian councils, along with the Regional Climate Adaptation Strategy, Southern Tasmania 2013 - 2017(PDF, 2MB).

We also provide ongoing support and a coordinating role for Southern Tasmanian Councils Authority's Regional Climate Change Initiative – a forum for southern councils to share information, ideas and undertake regional-based actions.
