NCCARF is delighted to announce that the new Funding Agreement between Griffith University and the Australian government (through the Department of the Environment) which brings NCCARF Phase 2 into operation was signed on 16th October. The Phase 2 program runs for three years and emphasises support for decision makers seeking to manage the Australian coastal zone under climate change and sea-level rise. Target groups for this work include local governments, the private sector and civil society. We are currently advertising to appoint new staff and when we are fully operational further information will be posted on this website.
