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.

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 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.


Practical knowledge for adaptation

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.
