Local residents learn valuable skills to help their community become climate ready

Residents from the Central Goldfields Shire joined locals from the Loddon Mallee region for a two-day forum on how to prepare communities for climate change.

Two Central Goldfields Shire residents joined people from across the Loddon Mallee region in learning how to help their community be climate ready recently.

ADAPT Loddon Mallee project coordinator Dona Cayetana said community leaders play a crucial role of informing and supporting local businesses, individuals and community groups in adapting to changes in our climate.

“The ADAPT Regional Climate Leadership program has brought people together from a diverse geographic region, ranging from farmers to homemakers to engineers, to lead change in their local communities,” she said.

“Local people are best placed to understand what their communities need and to influence change.

“ADAPT Regional Climate Leadership is being delivered in partnership with LEAD Loddon Murray, across four, two-day sessions over the next six months in different locations to strengthen participants’ skills in collaboration, team-building and engagement.”
