Submission to National Adaptation Plan Issues Paper

ALGA has provided a submission to the Federal Government’s National Adaptation Plan Issues Paper.

The submission makes a number of recommendations from the local government sector focusing on key role councils can play in adaptation for assets and services in local communities.

ALGA highlighted that climate change has the potential to damage local government assets, cause serious disruptions to the delivery of council services, generate unbudgeted financial impacts, and affect the overall wellbeing of communities – particularly those most vulnerable to weather extremes.

We look forward to a continued dialogue with the Government on adaptation issues.
