Instructions Integrated planning for climate change in Southern Tasmania In this report, you will act in the role of a planning consultant working for a new client – Climate Action Southern Tasmania (CAST). You have been engaged by CAST to evaluate the Southern Tasmanian Regional
Land Use Strategy and the Greater Hobart Plan in terms of how effectively these strategies mobilises land use planning to address regional climate impacts and risks. CAST has asked for evidence-based recommendations to guide the development of a more climate-responsive* 10-year land use
strategy, and an evaluation of the opportunities and threats that may emerge if these recommendations are implemented. To develop and support your case, recommendations, and evaluation, you will need to:
1. Write a consultant-style report – this still involves the use of academic sources and referencing.
2. Describe the southern Tasmanian region, drawing on key regional planning concepts and principles (e.g. human settlements, transport, infrastructure, economics).
3. Identify the main biophysical and social climate impacts and risks in the southern
4. Evaluate how effectively the current strategies mobilise land use planning to address these biophysical and social climate impacts and risks, including what political approach underpins its (in)effectiveness.
5. Develop an evidence-based case for how land use planning may be better mobilised to address these climate impacts and risks
