The Flood Management Strategy Port Phillip and Westernport 2021 – 2031 was co-designed with local government and key agencies. During the strategy’s development, it was acknowledged that councils have different levels of skills and expertise. Identifying and bridging these skill gaps is vital to effectively plan for and manage flooding in the region.
