Climate change adaptation: Briefing note 1: Community Services Organisations
This briefing outlines the challenges that Community Service Organisations face in preparing for a climate changed future. Future climate change is likely to make extreme events (e.g. bushfires and floods) occur more often and/or to become more severe, so increasing the responsibilities of CSOs. These changes may challenge the ability of CSOs to continue to operate effectively and to address the needs of their clients. This factsheet lists some of the risks this sector will be faced with, what climate change may mean for those working in this sector, and how adaptation might help shape their response to these challenges.
