While international and national efforts to combat climate change are crucial, regional strategies are essential to address specific local challenges. Victoria, a state in southeastern Australia, faces various climate-related issues, including
Extreme weather events: Victoria is susceptible to heatwaves, bushfires, and droughts.
Sea level rise: As a coastal region, Victoria is vulnerable to rising sea levels and associated flooding.
Agriculture and water supply: Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns can impact agriculture and water resources.
Biodiversity: Climate change threatens the unique ecosystems and biodiversity in the state.
Public health: Heatwaves and changing disease patterns affect public health.
Victoria’s Climate Change Strategy is designed to address these challenges and develop a sustainable and resilient future for the state.
