Climate-ready communities

Support your community to prepare for the impacts of climate change.

Climate change is happening and is here to stay.

Whether it's bushfires, heatwaves, floods or cyclones, extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and more intense. With the poor and vulnerable likely to be hit the hardest, it's essential that communities are supported to adapt to the changing conditions.

Red Cross has developed Climate-Ready Communities: A Guide to Getting Started to support communities to have their own conversation about how the things they value will be impacted by climate change, and what they can do to continue to thrive.

This guide is for anyone wanting to prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change, whether they be individuals, a self-organised community group, local council or community service provider.
