Sector Adaptation Plans

Industry-led Sector Adaptation Plans are important components of the Queensland Climate Adaptation Strategy (Q-CAS).

These plans help prioritise adaptation activities, identify emerging opportunities, share knowledge and encourage collaboration on complex issues.

Agriculture Sector Adaptation Plan

The development of the Agriculture Sector Adaptation Plan (PDF, 1.2MB) was led by a partnership of agriculture industry bodies including the Queensland Farmers’ Federation, AgForce and Growcom. 

Built Environment and Infrastructure Sector Adaptation Plan

The development of the Built Environment and Infrastructure Sector Adaptation Plan (PDF, 1MB) was led by DibbsBarker.

The development of both plans involved consultation with a wide range of industry stakeholders to ensure they reflect the needs and priorities of each sector as a whole.

To improve the development of our remaining Sector Adaptation Plans (SAPs), a review has been conducted of the two pilot plans delivered in August 2017 – the Agriculture SAP and the Built Environment and Infrastructure SAP.

The resulting report highlighted two main points: that sectors would like more time to develop their climate change adaptation plans and to consult their members, and that they would like greater clarity around the scope and objectives of the plans at the outset.

View the executive summary (PDF, 362KB) of the report.

The following Sector Adaptation Plans are planned for release in 2018:

  • Human health and wellbeing.
  • Biodiversity and ecosystems.
  • Tourism.
  • Small and medium business.
  • Industry and resources.
  • Emergency services.

Queensland Tourism Climate Change Response Plan

The development of the Sector Adaptation Plan for the tourism sector was led by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) and the Griffith Institute for Tourism (GIFT).

The Queensland Tourism Climate Change Response Plan (PDF, 3.33MB) outlines industry-led responses to the challenges presented by climate change and provides a framework to proactively respond to climate change risks and opportunities, and lead the way as a steward for the environment and key contributor to community wellbeing.

The Queensland Tourism Climate Change Response Plan sets a vision for future-proofing the industry through six key building blocks and priority areas. These are:

  • resilient businesses, destinations and communities
  • stewardship and education for healthy natural assets
  • green tourism industry leading the way towards carbon neutrality
  • diversified product for quality visitor experience
  • sustainable branding and marketing
  • a united tourism industry working together with government and communities.
