Above Beef cattle grazing in Hallora on multi-species pasture. Sowing a multi-species pasture crop is one of the actions in developing a climate adaptation plan for your property.
Bass Coast Landcare Network (BCLN) and its key partners have launched an online Climate Adaptation Plan (CAP).
The CAP tool has been designed to enable farmers to identify the climate impacts relevant for their enterprise and provide guidance for identifying specific on-farm solutions. The user-friendly tool assists land managers to develop an individual plan with the adaptation and mitigation actions needed to take the first steps towards having a climate resilient farm.
The CAP focuses on four climate drivers – temperature, wind, water, and seasonality and looks at what can be done as these drivers are changing. It is designed to encourage self-guided information collection and research. Advice on how to gather information and conduct your own research is provided along the way.
The BCLN is also planning a series of workshops in the future to help more landowners develop their own CAP.
The CAP can be accessed via www.growingsoutherngippsland.org.au/DevelopingMyPlan. For more information email email@example.com
