East Gippsland Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Plan
The East Gippsland Catchment Management Authority has now released the East Gippsland Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Plan.
The plan describes what farmers, communities and organisations in East Gippsland are currently doing to adapt to seasonal variability; highlights the likely impacts from climate change and variability across East Gippsland; identifies potential opportunities arising from the projected changes; and offers a range of practical options to support adaptation and carbon sequestration on freehold land and associated primary industries. The plan also identifies significant opportunities for sequestration of ‘blue carbon’ in the region’s significant aquatic ecosystems.
