Climate change adaptation toolkit and user's guide

The Climate Change Adaptation Toolkit is a comprehensive guide to planning for climate change adaptation in three steps. The impacts of climate change are already being experienced, generating a new series of risks for organisations. Climate change is a complex problem that requires a new integrated and collaborative risk management approach. It is recognised that traditional decision-making tools are designed to cope with a limited range of scenarios and linear problems – making them less effective in planning for climate change. The Climate Change Adaptation Toolkit has been developed to facilitate robust decision-making processes and to integrate climate change adaptation. Though originally designed for the city of Geelong, Australia, this kit’s contents are generic and can be adapted and put to use in any municipality.
