Reducing risk. Building resilience.

Introduction:

The City of Kalamunda has adopted a Draft Climate Change Action Plan for public comment.

  • The Plan sets out what the City of Kalamunda will be doing to address risk to the City’s environment, economy, infrastructure, community health, safety and wellbeing.
  • The Plan will ensure we are prepared and ready to adapt to the climate challenges that lie ahead.
  • The Plan outlines the City’s commitment to support and advise businesses and community to help them meet these challenges.
  • The Plan acknowledges that climate change is both a crisis and an opportunity for the City of Kalamunda.

Note: The Plan is a live document that will evolve over time as new information and technologies, and government initiatives, become available. The City of Kalamunda will conduct an internal operational evaluation every two years to track progress and opportunities.


Background

On 10 August 2021, the City of Kalamunda joined other Western Australian Local Governments by signing the WALGA Climate Change Declaration.

Following extensive community engagement, and in partnerships with climate change experts, the City prepared a Climate Change Action Plan.

The City of Kalamunda acknowledges that human behaviours, pollution and consumption patterns have both immediate and future impacts on the climate and environment, and that as a Local Government it is part of our role to mitigate and manage these impacts on our community.

Climate change is having local impacts upon our community notably in matters of extreme weather events, a drying climate and its impacts upon water supply and vegetation and an overall increase in average temperatures which impact the very young and our elderly.

Climate Change is a global threat. Local Government is committed to meeting international obligations through Australia’s participation in protocols and agreements established under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), including but not limited to the Paris Agreement and successive international treaties.

See the Q&A Tab for more about the Climate Change Declaration.
