Climate Change Strategy

On 31 July 2019, Council endorsed a project plan for development of a Climate Change Strategy during the 2019/20 financial year.

The scope of the project includes two main areas:

  • Sphere of control: Council operations
  • Sphere of influence: Advocacy and education (non-Council operations)

The objectives of the project are:

  • Develop a Climate Change Strategy for the Huon Valley Council
  • Conduct a values-driven consultation process to identify the underlying issues that matter to the community in relation to climate change, and how best to address them
  • Undertake consultation with the community on climate change and the draft strategy
  • Maximise efficiency and strategy quality by integrating with the Regional Climate Change Initiative (RCCI) Strategy and Action Plan Template project
  • Consider available information, expert/academic advice and previous studies to identify the most appropriate actions

Development is currently underway in accordance with the project brief

  • Community values-based consultation/survey
  • Community consultative group input (Terms of Reference can be found here)
  • A community forum
  • Public review and feedback period on the draft strategy
