Abstract

Climate change represents a significant challenge for local governments who will be at the forefront of managing the local response to its impacts. Climate change has the potential to directly (i.e. storm impact) and indirectly (i.e. policy changes at national levels) affect service provision. Local governments need to prepare for climate change
to protect assets, adapt to localised conditions and also to be part of the global solution (WALGA 2012).

This Climate Change Adaptation Plan (the ‘Adaptation Plan’) was developed in response to the recognised need by the City of Stirling (the City) to adopt a proactive and measured approach to respond to climate impacts. Through implementing the Adaptation Plan, the City will be supported to address climate risks, informed by an understanding of projected climate changes and associated impacts on the City’s operations and the community.
