With a growing risk of climate related impacts, it is vital that our community is well prepared. This project will assist in planning for these risks and help increase our resilience.
Murray River Council have asked us to partner with them to deliver the 'Building our Community in Advance' project. This project is aimed at improving preparation for a growing risk of climate related impacts, particularly drought and extreme weather events.
Current forecasts predict that the Riverina Murray Region will see increased temperature, a decrease in average annual rainfall, increased frequency and intensity of heatwaves and storm events. It is hoped that the learnings from this project will help improve preparedness and long-lasting resilience to future climate impacts.
The project will help create a more resilient community, increase long-term health outcomes and safety, improve local capacity by increasing resilience and adaptation to changing environmental conditions and economic challenges. It will assist our community in becoming more diverse and competitive, contributing to better quality services, more employment opportunities and improved infrastructure. It will also improve on-farm efficiency and maintenance of animal welfare, survival rates, and production levels which will translate to economic return.
