Townsville Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy

The Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy (CHAS) maps and identifies both potential impacts and subsequent strategies to manage the projected effects of climate change to the year 2100.

Funded by the Commonwealth Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, the report is one of four of its type in Australia and was undertaken by the Local Government Association of Queensland and Queensland Government as a pilot project study in partnership with the, Queensland State Government Departments and Townsville City Council.

The Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy is a high level technical background strategy and does not form Townsville City Council policy.

Any future adaptation strategy, investigations, consultation or actions that may arise out of the report are now subject to a Queensland Government planning review and long-term funding decisions by the Australian Government.
