Individuals, businesses and government must work together to meet the challenges of climate change.  The best place to start is in your own street, in your own community.




Gippsland faces a number of varying climate risks including:

• more frequent and intense heavy rainfalls causing flooding

• harsher bushfires

• more days of extreme heat

• sea level rise combined with storm surges, causing flooding and other impacts

• more storms including hailstorms1

There are basic science and forecasts for Victoria and projected trends for Gippsland on the Climate Ready Victoria Gippsland Projections Datasheet and the Gippsland Climate Ready brochure.


In addition this booklet has been developed for East Gippsland homeowners and residents.  It summaries the existing large volume of information into the most relevant risks and actions that can be undertaken.




East Gippsland Shire

The Council Plan recognises that East Gippsland Shire is vulnerable to coastal hazards, inundation, fire and extreme natural events and climate change has potential to increase our vulnerability. Work is continuing to understand the nature and extent of future impacts on communities. Council is committed to assisting communities to adapt to future conditions in a planned way.


We have also undertaken Victorian Adaptation and Sustainability Partnership projects by partnering with the state government to increase resilience and reduce risk from climate change.
