Adapting to Climate Change
Adaptation involves adjusting to the impacts of climate change.
Climate change projections show here what Three Rivers may experience over the next few decades.
- A 2°C increase in average annual temperatures.
- Hotter, drier summers with up to 25% less rainfall.
- Warmer, wetter winters with up to 22% more rainfall.
- Higher frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, such as heatwaves and severe flooding episodes.
There are simple steps we can all take to make our homes, our businesses and our communities more prepared for the impacts of climate change.
