The deliverables of the project will provide a methodology for the sector to develop a Climate Change Risk & Vulnerability Assessment (semi-quantitative) across local authority functions and assets.
The development of a common methodology for local authorities to carry out risk assessments will provide a key adaptation planning tool for the sector to establish the need for climate adaptation based on current and projected future risks, and the effectiveness of adaptation strategies and actions in reducing climate impacts to acceptable levels.
The risk assessment methodology will be trialled across the local authorities in the ASBN region in Q3-2021 before being rolled out nationally.
