Settlements and Infrastructure
National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plan (NARP)
NCCARF developed a National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plan (NARP) for Settlements and Infrastructure in 2010 to identify research required to provide decision makers within government, industry and communities with the information they need to effectively respond and adapt to the impacts of climate change on settlements and infrastructure.
This NARP was updated in 2012 to reflect the contribution of new research to practitioner knowledge needs, as well as the evolving requirements of practitioners. It is now being updated again in 2016.
Climate change poses significant threats to the social fabric of our towns and cities and to our urban and strategic infrastructure. It is likely to result in increased damage to buildings, energy, telecommunications, transport and water infrastructure and the services they provide.
The development of this Plan was led by the following writing team:
- Ron Cox, ACCARNSI, University of New South Wales,
- Tayanah O’Donnell, University of Canberra
- Barbara Norman University of Canberra,
- Daniel Ware GCCM Griffith University,
- Rodger Tomlinson GCCM Griffith University
