This section is dedicated to presenting relevant climate change adaptation research.  Reports presented here come from NCCARF as well as other reputable Australian and international organisations.
  • The Primary Industries NARP has been revisited in 2012 and priority research questions have been updated to ensure currency and to provide guidance for research investment over the next five years. This NARP was updated in 2013 to reflect the contribution of new research to practitioner knowledge needs, as well as the evolving requirements of practitioners.
  • This research analyses the extent of damage to buildings in Brisbane, Ipswich and Grantham during the recent Eastern Australia flooding and explore the role planning and design/construction regulations played in these failures. It highlights weaknesses in the current systems and propose effective solutions to mitigate future damage and financial loss under current or future climates.
  • This report details research funded by the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility that examines the likely impacts on the built environment of increased intensities in weather-related natural hazard events, in order to identify the possibilities of using the regulatory mechanisms of building construction, housing insurance and planning in climate change adaptation.
  • This report presents findings from our research project that investigates the nature and scope of climatic extremes experienced since 2000 in Central Queensland’s coal mining region. It examines the direct and flow-on impacts of extreme events on the mining industry and other stakeholders, and the response mechanisms employed by these stakeholder groups to address key impacts.
  • Projects relevant to business and industry in NCCARF's research portfolio are listed in this factsheet with information on the investigators and delivery date and a short summary of each project. Research themes include financial mechanisms for adaptation, extractive and primary industries, commercial fishing, buildings and infrastructure, tourism and the food industry.
