The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plan (NARP) for Settlements and Infrastructure was revisited in 2012 and the priority research questions have been updated to ensure currency and to provide guidance for research investment over the next five years.

The NARP for Settlements and Infrastructure is concerned with identifying priority research questions for climate change adaptation issues relevant to Australia’s cities, towns and regions, including coastal communities and regions.

Research focused on these priority questions should support governments, building and land owners, community organisations and individuals to make sound decisions about adaptation initiatives for climate change issues they face or anticipate. These decisions should be able to take advantage of opportunities for settlements and infrastructure that result from climate change and to reduce unavoidable detrimental climate change impacts.
