The Climate Change Risk Matrix

Managing climate change and variability is a challenge for all individuals as well as industries and organisations in Queensland. Current and future impacts of the climate changes we are experiencing will impose further challenges to the way we think about and manage businesses, regions and industries in an uncertain environment.

The Climate Change Risk Management Matrix (available from the Workbook and eWorkbook downloads) is a tool that can help address uncertainty by identifying the impacts, risk and vulnerability and adaptive responses associated with climate change. Identifying and analysing risks and opportunities, using this risk management approach, can help to plan responses to climate variability and climate change – and can enable organisations to be proactive and more effective in adapting to future uncertainty.
