Expand your knowledge of climate change risks and opportunities

Dept of Climate Change, Energy, Environment & Water

Australian Public Servants (APS) can now learn about how climate change risks and opportunities can impact our work.

The Australian Government’s Approach to Climate Risk and Opportunity Management in the Public Sector 2023-26 aims to develop APS capabilities to identify, manage and report climate risks and opportunities.

It sets out how all Commonwealth agencies will assess and report their climate risks.

The program has resources for public servants to use, including:

  • downloadable guides that give step-by-step instructions
  • clear advice on identifying and managing climate risks and opportunities.

There are also online learning modules about climate change risks and opportunities, and a support service. Members of the APS can access this material at the APS Academy.

Climate change induced events are increasing in frequency and severity in Australia.

This information will support improved policies that respond to climate change.
