The Western Adelaide Region in South Australia lies between the city and its beautiful, busy beaches and ports along the coastline of Gulf St Vincent. Climate change poses unique challenges to the infrastructure, economy and lifestyle of this special and important region.
Adelaide’s West has a plan
The AdaptWest Climate Change Adaptation Plan, developed collaboratively by the cities of Charles Sturt, Port Adelaide-Enfield and West Torrens comprising the Western Adelaide Planning Region, identifies the real and specific implications of climate change; and provides realistic strategies for residents, businesses, organisations and agencies of our western community to get ready, to respond and build resilience to the present and future challenges of climate change.
The project is now in the implementation phase – AdaptWest in Action.
Visit the AdaptWest website and find out more.
A number of climate mitigation and adaptation initiatives are currently being undertaken by the City of West Torrens as part of our response to addressing climate change. A climate mitigation and adaptation initiatives report and table summarising these key initiatives were presented to Council's City Services and Climate Adaptation Committee on 3 March 2020.
