Climate change affects us all...

Adapting Northern Adelaide

The Climate Change Adaptation Plan identifies the priority actions and adaptation pathways that will help local government, communities and businesses adapt to climate related risks across short medium and long term timeframes.  The Plan also describes a Northern Adelaide Green Industries Program to promote recognition of the region’s green industry capabilities, support South Australia’s transition to a low carbon economy and local jobs.

The Cities of Playford and Salisbury finalised this plan in July 2016. Read the plan now: ANA – Climate Change Adaptation Plan

The accompanying Discussion Paper describes an adaptive economy as one that recognises that climate change mitigation and adaptation imperatives can be a catalyst for innovation and a generator of a wide range of high value industry and employment opportunities.

Stage 2 Documentation


Following completion of the stage two in the Adapting Northern Adelaide project, we have developed the Integrated Vulnerability Assessment report. This report describes the process and outcomes used to assess where climate impacts could cause the most harm to places and activities we value in Northern Adelaide. 

The process included targeted workshops of council staff and external subject experts. Participants assessed the exposure and sensitivity of places and activities in ten areas of potential impact, including the identified high priority areas of water management, assets and infrastructure.  Integrated Vulnerability Assessment results were provided for sectors and specific indicators for places and activities.
