A Resilient Territory

Deliver an overarching strategy for the Territory to increase its preparedness to respond and adapt to climate change in the immediate and long term futures


As part of delivering on the Climate Change Response: Towards 2050 the Government has committed to putting in place adaptation measures to help build the resilience of the Northern Territory in the face of climate change. Adaptation is not just about ensuring risks from climate change are minimised, it also speaks to harnessing and exploiting opportunities that may come from a changing climate. The proposed Adaptation Strategy will put in place a framework to guide the Territory’s planning and response to both threats and opportunities arising from a changing climate. The Strategy will guide all stakeholders of the Northern Territory, providing direction and setting out principles for undertaking adaptation planning and assessment.
