Strengthening Strathbogie in a Changing Climate
Strathbogie Shire Council
About the project
Research engagement and preparation of a strategic plan which:
- enhances Council's understanding of the risks and implications of climate change; and
- recommends initiatives to respond to such challenges to sustain and strengthen Strathbogie's communities and economy.
The Plan will:
- have regard to, consolidate and recommend amendments to existing strategic plans;
- have a shire wide outlook and include actions relevant to a range of stakeholders;
- have a five year outlook for time framed , prioritised initiatives with longer term aspiration goals for future consideration; and
- provide a framework to monitor implementation and evaluate actions listed in the plan.
This project was completed in June 2012 and resulted in the “Strengthening Strathbogie in a Changing Climate Strategic Plan”. In addition Council developed an Action and Implementation Plan and education materials. This additional documentation will be an invaluable resource when it comes to the implementation of the strategic plan.
