LCLIP: Local Climate Impacts Profile (2013)

Description

The phenomenon of climate change continues to move up the local government agenda. As it does, councils and other organisations are becoming increasingly aware of the potential impacts of a changing climate and the need to develop adaptation responses. But, is it changing weather events or a changing climate to which local councils must adapt? Local Climate Impacts Profile (LCLIP): a simple tool designed to help organisations to assess their exposure to weather and climate. The LCLIP process highlights a locality’s vulnerability to severe weather events and how these events affect local communities as well as local authority assets, infrastructure and capacity to deliver services. An LCLIP is a pragmatic, and effective, starting point for a better understanding of the future.
