Marsden Jacob has recently completed a series of climate change adaptation business cases for eight local council members of the South East Councils Climate Change Alliance (SECCCA). The business cases are part of the Financial Risk Adaptation Planning (FRAP) project funded by the Victorian Government.
The business cases examine adaptation to coastal flooding, inland flooding, bushfires and heatwaves. Two business cases examine emergency management procedures and processes. Each of the business cases is underpinned by a cost-benefit analysis or cost effectiveness analysis of options to address the climate-related risk in question.
A website providing information on the FRAP program and summary reports for the business cases can be found at
