The Challenge

What are the potential risks of climate change on the operations of a group of Local governments and how can these managed most effectively?

The member councils that make up WESROC needed to conduct a strategic risk assessment to help identify priorities around climate change, both for member Councils and for the region as a whole.

Members of the Adaptive Futures team were involved in guiding the member councils through a facilitated risk assessment and adaptation planning process, using the best practice risk framework (Climate change impacts and risk management: A guide for business and government). The process involved a series of workshop with key Council stakeholders to ensure the outcomes were meaningful to each Council.

At the end of the project, the team presented findings at an open information forum with Councillors and invited guests.
