City of Melbourne Climate Change Adaptation Strategy

Based on current known resilience levels
and control measures, the assessment
identifies critical risks for both the City of
Melbourne and the municipality to address.
It provides the foundation of an adaptation
plan for all city stakeholders to contribute
and respond to.

While some climatic changes are an
ongoing concern, four potential extreme
event scenarios for Melbourne were
identified that together embody the
range of climate change risks for the
municipality. These are:
• reduced rainfall and drought;
• extreme heatwave and bushfire;
• intense rainfall and wind storm; and
• sea level rise.
