Standards Australia has completed work on the first Australian Standard dealing explicitly with the management of risks associated with climate change for communities and infrastructure. The standard will provide principles and guidelines on the identification and management of risks that communities and infrastructure face from climate change.
It will provide a systematic approach to planning the adaptation of communities and infrastructure based on the risk management process. The standard follows the International Standard ISO 31000:2009 Risk management – Principles and guidelines.
“This voluntary standard is about appropriate risk management for climate change,” said Colin Blair, Chief Executive Officer, Standards Australia. “The principles on which the standard is based recognise that climate change risk management needs to be an integral part of decision-making and based on the best information available.”
