What is the Climate Ready Initiative?

The Climate Ready Initiative (CRI) is a partnership-based social impact initiative that works with society to help shape a prosperous and just future for all. We seek to enable climate action by unlocking the economic and social development pathways that value net-zero emissions and climate resilience.

The CRI is housed by the Griffith Climate Action Beacon and builds on decades of trusted climate action and development partnerships and engagements in Australia, the Asia Pacific Region and Internationally.

The challenge

Climate change is happening now and requires urgent action that can deliver sustainable development. This challenge has a clear problem, clear demand, and a clear need.


Our economic, social and environmental systems are facing unprecedented risks and opportunities.


Almost all sectors and communities of society are calling for climate action to ensure a sustainable, secure and prosperous future.


Ensure society is sufficiently organised and prepared to deal with the complex and wide-spanning impacts of climate change.

Our flagship project

Australia needs a collective plan to become climate ready. Climate Ready Australia 2030 brings together partners from across society to develop a shared agenda for climate action that can be translated into real transformative action.
