Rivers to Reef Climate Resilient Alliance


The Rivers to Reef Climate Resilient Alliance is a group of Far North Queensland councils working together to manage risks and develop opportunities for a climate resilient, low carbon future.

Facilitated by FNQROC, its founding members are Cairns Regional Council, Mareeba Shire Council, Tablelands Regional Council and Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council.

Through sharing expertise and working with stakeholders, the Alliance aims to scale up successful initiatives and accelerate collaborative projects, reducing duplication, effort and costs.

This pilot project is part of the Queensland Climate Resilient Councils program delivered by the Local Government Association Queensland, thanks to $100,000 funding from the Queensland Government.
