Last Wednesday in Melbourne, ICLEI Oceania launched its Local Government Climate Change Adaptation Toolkit, which was developed to help guide local governments through the adaptation challenge. I was fortunate to be present at the launch, lending my services by providing a presentation on the type of climate changes to which Victorians will have to adapt in the years ahead.

The Adaptation Toolkit itself is comprised of 14 tools, each of which assists local governments with different components of the adaptation planning process, such as workshopping climate risks and adaptation options, stakeholder identification, identifying adaptation barriers and articulating an action plan.
