Resilience to climate change


Hobart is a climate change ready and resilient city


  • Advocate for a Climate Change Adaptation Plan that considers the full range of vulnerabilities that Hobart has in a warming world. In particular Hobart needs to ensure it is reducing the threat of a catastrophic bushfire with the development of green fire breaks around the city.
  • I will meet twice a year with the State Fire Commission to ensure the Council and Hobart residents are fully engaged with the risk of bushfire and the steps needed to reduce the risk of loss of life.
  • Advocate as part of the Capital City Mayors group to reinstate Federal Government funding for local government to make their cities ‘climate change ready.’
