A key challenge for local government to address climate change at a whole-of-business level. This program aimed to provide mentoring and training to support local government to integrate climate change adaptation into their operations and services.
RMCG worked closely with the Department to design the initiative through consultation with key state and local government stakeholders. This involved developing a program logic, determining what success looks like and informing the detailed work plan.
This enabled the Initiative to work more effectively with the local government sector and other groups (e.g. greenhouse alliances) and measure progress towards achieving the stated objectives. Best practice evaluation also supported continuous improvement of the program.
