Limestone Coast Climate Adaptation Committee

Over the last two years, the Limestone Coast Local Government Association (LCLGA), Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast (RDALG), the South East NRM Board (SENRMB) and the Department for Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) have been working together with the community to develop the Limestone Coast Regional Climate Change Adaptation Plan (LCRCCAP). The Regional Adaptation Plan identifies adaptation options for the Limestone Coast to address key vulnerabilities or opportunities presented by a changing climate.

The LCRCCAP identified 10 key decision areas for action for the Limestone Coast:

  1. Coastal Landscapes
  2. Vulnerable members of the community
  3. Water security
  4. Irrigated agriculture, horticulture and viticulture
  5. Marine habitats & fisheries
  6. Natural ecosystems
  7. Recreation, open space and public realm
  8. Road infrastructure
  9. Tourism
  10. Wetlands

A Sector Agreement was signed between the Government of South Australia (represented by the Minister for Climate Change), LCLGA, RDALC and SENRMB at Bordertown on 11 September 2016. The Agreement will operate as a memorandum of understanding between the partners and sets out the partners’ commitment and governance arrangements for implementing the actions in the LCRCCAP. The signatories of the Sector Agreement agreed that it would be beneficial for the implementation of the LCRCCAP that a formal committee be established to oversee the implementation of the Plan.

• 1 delegate from the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources Natural Resources SE Branch


The Limestone Coast Climate Adaptation Committee (LCCAC) will:

• Prepare a three-year action plan to guide activities towards the areas of focus set out in the LCRCCAP and others as required, and clearly identify relevant and feasible actions and measurable outcomes.
