Sector Adaptation Plans

Sector Adaptation Plans are an important component of the Queensland Climate Adaptation Strategy (Q-CAS) 2017–2030 (PDF, 2MB).

The eight plans help to prioritise climate change adaptation activities across the key sectors of the community. They have been developed in consultation with sector and industry stakeholders to reflect the needs and priorities of each sector. They identify emerging opportunities, share knowledge and encourage collaboration.
