The Climate Change Adaption ProgramMonday, February 23. 2009
The Australian Climate Change Adaption Program is the easiest way for an organisation to immediately adapt to climate change. ACCAP reduces the impact of severe weather and other destructive events which threaten our communities. There are free and paid subscriptions to ACCAP. The Australian federal, state and local government are talking a lot about climate change. Hundreds of millions of dollars and the nation's economic engine room are being committed to fighting it. Climate change adaption can be defined as 'actions in response to actual or projected climate change impacts that lead to a reduction in risks or realisation of benefits'. The systems GIS is used to select the area to be alerted and is accurate to within three meters. The people within that area are alerted by multiple channels immediately and simultaneously.
The Climate Control system covers all of Australia with the exception of Western Australia. The alerts included so far have been the Brisbane storms, the North QLD floodings and severe hail storms in the northern NSW, Coffs Harbour and Canberra. Alerts are also provided for electricity loss and other important events.
