Australia’s post-2020 emission reduction target and associated strategies, including its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to the Paris Agreement included a commitment to develop a National Climate Resilience and Adaptation Strategy.
The National Climate Resilience and Adaptation Strategy sets out how Australia is managing climate risks for the benefit of the community, economy and environment. It identifies a set of principles to guide effective adaptation practice and resilience building, and outlines the Government’s vision for the future. The Strategy offers examples of leading practice adaptation activities underway in Australia and in the Pacific. The examples draw from the work of governments at all levels, businesses and non-government organisations. It shows how choices being made today help to limit our future vulnerability to climate change.

The Strategy proposes four priorities that will guide engagement with business and the community to ensure that the Framework continues to meet our needs in the future:
