To assist in understanding and adapting to climate change, Bundaberg Regional Council has developed a Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy (CHAS) for its 110km of coastline.

The final version of the Bundaberg Region Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan was adopted by Council at the Ordinary Meeting of 29 September 2020.
