Climate Resilient Communities
The Climate Resilient Communities of the Barwon South West project is a collaboration between 10 Councils in the Barwon South West region and a range of partners, including Catchment Management Authorities and water authorities.
The project began in 2012 with the aim of helping communities throughout the region to understand what risks and opportunities might be presented by future extreme weather events. It has sought to build municipal preparedness to extreme climate events through a wide range of planning and embedding projects.
Climate Resilient Communities of the Barwon South West is funded by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, with further contributions from each Council and partner.
