The Victorian Government is committed to action to keep global warming below two degrees. However, no matter how quickly we reduce emissions, some change is inevitable, and we must prepare for and adapt to the impacts.
Victoria’s Climate Change Adaptation Plan: 2017-2020, which was released in February 2017, is a blueprint for action that will help Victorians meet the challenges and act on the opportunities of climate change.
The plan will build a detailed understanding of Victoria’s exposure to climate change risks and impacts, catalyse partnerships for integrated and effective responses to climate change, and tackle immediate priorities to reduce climate change risks.
It will help us all play our part and work together to achieve our vision for Victoria – a thriving natural environment and a healthy, prosperous, safe and vibrant place to work and live for all Victorians, and for the thousands of visitors we welcome each year.

The index for the magazine currently includes more than 6500 index entries and can be accessed in the Magazine library. As each new issue of the magazine is published the index is updated. The index lists stories by author, title and by subject. Each index entry is hyperlinked to a specific story that has featured in an issue of the magazine.
The next issue of the magazine, to be published in spring 2017, will feature stories of the winners of the 2017 Victorian Landcare Awards.
The summer 2018 issue will feature stories about water. If your group has a story to tell about managing water – from waterway health to wetlands, flooding, and drought proofing, we would like to hear from you.
Our readers are keen to learn about the successes of different projects, as well as what hasn’t worked, and the insights and reflections of your group or network along the way. Please contact the editor with your story ideas.
Contributions to the water issue should be sent to the editor by Friday 17 November 2017.
