Resilient South - Climate Ready Southern Adelaide

Resilient South is about strengthening southern Adelaide so that our businesses, communities and environments can bounce back from the challenges of climate change, and stay productive, connected, and strong. The impacts of a changing climate are already being felt across southern Adelaide. Even if we achieve a substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation), some changes to our climate are already locked in. This means that we also need to prepare and respond to the impacts from a changing climate (adaptation).
