Future change in ancient worlds: Indigenous adaptation in northern Australia
Adaptation Research Grants Program
Northern Australia is likely to experience more frequency and intense extreme weather events as a consequence of climate change. Threats to biodiversity and changes to temperatures and seasons may impact heavily on Indigenous communities. Decisions about how to support Indigenous communities to adapt to and reduce risks from climate change must be informed by greater understanding of current capacity. The project will provide understanding of how Indigenous communities view change and risk, how they may be vulnerable or resilient, and how they have coped with past and ongoing environmental changes such as heatwaves, storm surges, cyclones, floods, sea level rise, drought and biodiversity loss.
