Adaptation and resilience

12.1 Adaptation enables the whole community to build climate and disaster resilience:

  1. Risk assessment, risk reduction, adaptation, and disaster management are embedded into decision-making, systems and processes
  2. Resilience is enabled through cost effective investment in risk assessment, adaptation, disaster management and the utilisation of innovative technologies and concepts
  3. Accurate and current models, mapping and other corporate datasets inform the understanding of the risks associated with climate change
  4. Adaptation and disaster risk reduction planning minimises economic, social, environmental and infrastructure impacts
  5. Strong and enduring partnerships are established and supported to improve understanding and action on climate adaptation
  6. Collective action delivers a resilient Sunshine Coast.
Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
