NCCARF2: The Next Phase of the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility
NCCARF completed activities for its first phase on 30 June 2013. The Facility is currently continuing communication, coordination and capacity building activities on a reduced scale, supported by funds from its partners.
On 24 August, 2013, the then-Shadow Minister for Climate Action, Environment and Heritage, Mr Greg Hunt MP, announced that a Coalition Government would provide NCCARF with $9 million over three years to ensure its research programs could continue.
The Coalition was elected on 7 September 2013. It is anticipated that Commonwealth funding for NCCARF will recommence in the latter part of 2014.
