NCCARF closes the consultation phase of CoastAdapt on 11 November. If you would like to contribute to the review, please fill out our survey.

The review of updates to four National Adaptation Research Plans, or NARPs, continues. We welcome contributions to the review. Consultation drafts and instructions for the review are available here. The review closes on 1st November.

NCCARF is continuing the update of its report on the state of knowledge in climate adaptation in Australia. This publication can be accessed here. If you know of datasets/reports etc. that should be included in the revised report, please go to to let us know. The closing date for submissions is 11 November.

The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility

The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) works to support decision makers throughout Australia as they prepare for and manage the risks of climate change and sea-level rise.

NCCARF is currently developing a three year program (2014-17) to address the adaptation needs of decision makers and practitioners, especially in the coastal zone, as they deal with projected impacts such as more frequent and more intense heatwaves, increasing risk of flooding from rivers and the sea, and increasing coastal erosion.

Based at Griffith University on the Gold Coast, NCCARF has a national focus across Australia to build resilience to climate change in government, NGOs and the private sector. For more information on our aims and activities, please look through the Project Plan, or contact

What is Adaptation?

In a world where climate impacts are increasingly observable and adaptation actions are increasingly required, we showcase leading impacts and adaptation research and explore the contribution of adaptation science to planning and policy making.



A range of information products, including research reports, fact sheets, data, presentations and other outputs from NCCARF's research programs are now available.


Synthesis program

NCCARF is developing a synthesis and communication program to condense and translate technical research information developed in its first phase into digestable communication products for a diverse audience of end users.


Adaptation Networks

NCCARF’s Adaptation Research Networks, hosted by universities across Australia, are a community of researchers and practitioners working together to progress climate change adaptation knowledge.
