ADAPT Projects

ADAPT will deliver various projects across the region aimed at building local adaptive capacity, forging strong partnerships and learning networks, sharing the latest climate and adaption knowledge and research and support local communities and their leaders to become climate-ready.

Caring for Country in a Changing Climate

Caring for Country in Changing climate is an ADAPT Loddon Mallee micro-funding program supported by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

This program aims to support Aboriginal communities and groups in the region to undertake activities that involve:

  1. Planning or acting on climate change impacts in areas that are a key priority for your community and Country? (example include: climate impacts on natural resource management, cultural sites and practices, physical and mental health and wellbeing, vulnerability to extreme weather events such as bushfire, heatwaves, floods etc)
  2. Gathering or applying traditional knowledge and ways of working on country to collectively address climate change impacts on people and country.
