Partnering for Climate-Ready Biodiversity Conservation


CSIRO, in partnership with the Queensland Government, City of Gold Coast, Scenic Rim Local Council and the Local Government Association of Queensland has developed a methodology to help local government in Queensland adapt biodiversity management in the face of climate change. 

The project involved three workshops with local government and natural resource management participants to trial and tailor a prototype. The project was designed as a learning experience for participants and the project team, including opportunities for reflection, identification of improvements and clarifying what participants would need to run it with others.

Building agency and capacity to transition to a resilient future in Bega Valley


CSIRO, in partnership with Value Advisory Partners and the University of Adelaide, facilitated the early steps of the Enabling Resilience Investment approach with a range of local government, business and community leaders in the first half of 2021. This process helped to provide some elements of visions for the future, and how to get there through identifying some high level options for disaster risk reduction and building resilience in Bega Valley. This project is part of CSIRO’s efforts to build national capability for Enabling Resilient Investment.

Read more about the visions, options and pathways for an adaptive future in Bega Valley here.

Further stages currently underway in the project will further analyse some of the high level options to provide more detailed planning for resilience investment. This work is currently in a co-design phase with local stakeholders. These further stages of the project are funded through the Australian Climate Service.
