Tackling the challenges of a changing climate


The Department of Health and Department of Families, Fairness and Housing have officially launched their Health and Human Services Climate Change Adaption Action Plan 2022 - 2026. 

The plan sets clear actions to help our community stay healthy and well and aims to improve climate resilience of our health and housing infrastructure while also building on our community and sector engagement on important climate and health issues. 

A public consultation process in 2021 helped shape the final plan and the thoughts and feedback provided will be helpful during implementation and for future policy development and work in the climate change space.
