Settlements and Infrastructure
The Australian Climate Change Adaptation Research Network for Settlements and Infrastructure (ACCARNSI) is hosted by the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of New South Wales (UNSW).
ACCARNSI is one of eight Adaptation Research Networks hosted by the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF), Griffith University.
The aim of ACCARNSI is to initiate and develop effective strategies to respond to climate change through mitigation, adaptation and implementation. It is bringing together researchers and stakeholders with an interest in climate change adaptation for coastal settlements, public and private infrastructure, the built environment and urban regional planning. Research direction will assist government, the private sector and vulnerable regions and communities to make informed decisions on how best to educate, plan and manage adaptation for the risks of climate change on coastal settlements, urban and built environments and infrastructure.
CLIMATE ADAPTATION 2014
The NCCARF Climate Adaptation 2014 conference will bring together end users and researchers from across Australia to share experience in adaptation and showcase activities, strategies and research. We invite you to attend Climate Adaptation 2014 to be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Gold Coast, Queensland, from 30 September to 2 October 2014.
The conference will be the nexus between the research community and the users of climate change adaptation information in Australia. Building on the success of the NCCARF conferences in 2010, 2011 and 2013 this conference will kick-off what we plan to make a biennial series of climate adaptation conferences. This will be Australia’s pre-eminent event focusing solely on climate change adaptation for 2014.
The call for abstracts and registration will open in February 2014. Please visit the NCCARF Conference Website for further details.
