MAXIMISING THE RESILIENCE TO CLIMATE CHANGE IN OUR REGION
The Whitsunday Climate Change Innovation Hub is an initiative of Whitsunday Regional Council. The hub aims to develop real-world and innovative solutions to assist the Whitsunday region in facing climate change challenges. In doing so, the hub will act as a think tank to reflect and transmit knowledge based best practices in the wider community.
Current and past projects on climate change related initiatives include the development of the Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy, installation of solar photovoltaic panels across key Council assets, development of Council’s Adaptation Policy and Strategy, and most recently the development of a Climate Change Mitigation Strategy.
The Hub’s research priorities are focused on projects that will provide the greatest benefit to the Whitsunday community.
The Climate Hub Advisory Panel is made up of both National and International climate and climate related experts and include experts in the field of law, climate adaptation, finance, insurance, tourism and agriculture.
