Challenges faced by Local Councils

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions within a community is a Local Council’s responsibility. A Council’s role is critical to helping it community adapt to climate change. Localised strategies, such as adopting renewable power and energy efficiency projects, will help them meet their community’s carbon footprint reduction targets.

Despite the different strategies Local Councils formulated to reach their Net Zero goals, they’re still faced with numerous challenges in implementing these. Some of these hurdles include the lack of knowledge about the effects of climate change or the lack of sufficient budget to roll out initiatives to decrease carbon emissions.
