About the program

The Department of Health and Human Services, with the support of the Commonwealth Government, is running the Community Services Climate Resilience Program. The program aims to build resilience to natural disasters and climate change in community service organisations. The program provides a facilitator to participating organisations to support their development of appropriate and relevant planning responses to climate risks. This year, numerous CSOs have been involved in the program, each working with facilitators from Arup to achieve a tailored approach to best increase and embed climate and disaster preparedness in their organisation.

This program is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Commonwealth Government
