Email Premier Allan - Make sure Victoria is Climate Ready!


Climate action is more important than ever, and Victoria needs to continue to lead the nation on mitigation and climate disaster readiness that protects communities and ecosystems. 

That’s why this year we have put forward our ‘Climate Ready Vic’ proposal to the Victorian State Government- it's a suite of policies that we think will make sure we put our best foot forward to face a new climate reality, and make sure no one is left behind.

In preparing the 2024 Victorian State Budget, we call on Premier Jacinta Allan to:

  • Reduce transport emissions by backing a pilot of a bold, transformational, accessible, ‘turn up and go’ bus network in the West 

  • Funding a far-reaching public education campaign to show Victorians how to reduce or replace their gas use, and doubling the Victorian Energy Upgrades program
  • Assisting communities to prepare for climate disasters, by establishing a permanent Victorian Community Climate Adaptation Fund (VCCAF)

  • Establishing Additional Forest Fire Management Victoria (FFMV) remote area firefighting crews to protect fire-sensitive ecosystems and to stop fires while they are small
  • Adding a volunteer remote area firefighting team within the CFA, which would be tasked with supporting FFMV firefighters in protecting public and natural assets in national parks.
  • Protecting forests, our crucial carbon sinks, by increasing funding for ecological research, monitoring, and restoration across Victoria’s public land forests

  • Funding and supporting First Nations land management - Increase funding for existing programs and allocate new funds to enable Traditional Owners to re-establish management of their Country
