Adaptation Action Plan
The Victorian Government is preparing Adaptation Actions Plans (AAPs) across seven systems, to ensure Victoria’s climate resilience both now and in the future.
Each AAP is different because each system is unique.
Each has its own climate change vulnerabilities and risks, distinct stakeholders, different barriers to adaptation, and different roles for government.
The first AAPs will iteratively guide adaptation efforts over the next five years and lay vital foundations to accelerate progress towards a climate resilient Victoria in 2050.
Subsequent AAPs will be prepared every five years, as required by the Climate Change Act 2017.

The draft Transport Adaptation Action Plan 2022-26
The draft Transport Adaptation Action Plan 2022-26 (AAP) was released for comment on 9 July 2021.
The AAP proposes actions to address climate change, develop a deeper understanding of its implications for the transport system and respond to change.
It is the first in a series of five-year plans that will provide the building blocks for a climate-resilient Victorian transport system by 2050.
The AAP considers the whole lifecycle of the transport system and presents fifteen actions under three objectives to address, plan and prepare transport assets, infrastructure and services for climate change risks over the next five years.
To find a copy of the AAP and other supporting information or to provide your feedback, visit the Engage Victoria website.
Submissions close on 6 August 2021.
