Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil is hop­ing to be in­volved in a three-year pro­gram on cli­mate change of­fered by the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment As­so­ci­a­tion of Queens­land.

The pro­gram of­fers re­sources on cli­mate change pro­grams to 20 Queens­land coun­cils that ap­ply.

“Cli­mate change is an is­sue that in­creas­ingly af­fects all of us and, in par­tic­u­lar, us here in Dou­glas due to our coastal, trop­i­cal and en­vi­ron­men­tally sen­si­tive lo­ca­tion,” Mayor Ju­lia Leu said.
