Queensland Local Government Coastal Hazard Adaptation Program

The Local Government Association of Queensland, through a budget allocation of $12 million from the Queensland Government, have a funding offer for project proposals from coastal local governments to undertake coastal hazard adaptation planning – QCoast2100.

As a proactive approach to changing climate conditions this initiative facilitates Local Governments to have a forward thinking process much needed to deal with future weather conditions that can result in storm tide flooding and coastal erosion.

Development of this initiative in Queensland has been underway for a number of years and a special acknowledgement must go to Dorean Erhart  at the Local Government Association of Queensland for her untiring effort to bring this together in partnership with the Qld Department of Environment and Heritage and coastal Local Governments.
