Climate and Health

In 2021, the Shire partnered with Jesuit Social Services and RMIT to identify climate change risks to the health and wellbeing of the Mornington Peninsula community.  The investigation looked at the physical impacts of climate change, vulnerable populations, current community services and factors that influence an individual’s exposure to climate change.  The report also made recommendations for future planning to improve the health and wellbeing outcomes for our community.

This valuable information was used to inform the Shire’s Council and Wellbeing Plan  will also be used to inform the Shire’s detailed Health and Wellbeing Action Plans and future programs for the community.
