What does it actually mean and why should not-for-profit organisations care?
Tackling climate change
Understanding, preparing for and adapting to climate change.
Floods, droughts, heatwaves, supply chain disruption, mass population shifts – these are no longer things we have to prepare for but things we are now experiencing.
Climate change is a serious governance issue for Australian not-for-profits. It affects everything from workforce planning to funding to the safety of people and physical properties. It has to be understood, planned for, responded to. Community leaders have a responsibility to ensure their organisations are ready.
This ICDA mini-site is designed to help you understand, prepare for and adapt to climate change, and act now to cut your own greenhouse gas emissions.
