DPIPWE has finalised the TWWHA Natural Values Climate Change Adaptation Strategy 2021-2031, which aims to manage the risk and reduce the impacts of the changing climate on the TWWHA.
The strategy focuses on delivering practical information and actions that aim to manage the risk and reduce the impacts of changing climate on the natural values of the TWWHA, which is recognised for its Outstanding Universal Values (OUV).
The strategy has been developed with the intent of using adaptive management principles, appropriate monitoring, evaluation and reporting of management decisions.
It adds to the climate change work undertaken over the past 15 years, led by the DPIPWE’s Natural and Cultural Heritage Division.
This program of work has undertaken risk assessments focusing on geodiversity, flora, and fauna values respectively, and has established a suite of monitoring programs to track the condition of values considered to be at imminent risk of climate change impacts.
