Abstract

Preface

Climate change adaptation and floods is a case study that contributed to a broader climate change adaptation project. The case study used project methodology developed by Karen Hussey, Steve Dovers and Richard Price. Details of the umbrella project are: Hussey, K, Price, R, Pittock, J, Livingstone, J, Dovers, S, Fisher, D & Hatfield-Dodds, S 2013, Statutory frameworks, institutions and policy processes for climate adaptation: Do Australia’s existing statutory frameworks, associated institutions and policy processes support or impede national adaptation planning and practice?National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility, Gold Coast, 193 pp.

The case study also drew upon work undertaken as part of a second NCCARF project under its synthesis and integrative program (referred to in this paper as the SIRP Report): Wenger, C, Hussey, K & Pittock J 2013, Living with floods: Key lessons from Australia and abroad, National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility, Gold Coast, 267 pp.

The author would like to thank Jamie Pittock, Karen Hussey and Richard Price for valued feedback on the initial draft.
