Tool Implementation Partnership
CoastAdapt is being developed with support and assistance from the wider adaptation community. To facilitate this interaction with potential users, we set up the Tool Development Partnership (TDP) in mid-2015. There were ten members of the original Partnership, drawn from across Australia and every State. The majority were coastal local councils, together with representation from a small business The TDP met regularly to provide review, guidance and advice on the development of CoastAdapt and to test final products.
The Partnership has now been extended to 15 members and renamed the Tool Implementation Partnership (TIP). In its new role, the Partnership will work with NCCARF to raise awareness of the beta version of CoastAdapt, and to support NCCARF through the engagement and consultation process. It will provide guidance as NCCARF carries out the final changes to CoastAdapt, due for completion in February 2017.
The TIP is made up of representatives from the following organisations:
- Bega Valley Shire Council
- Byron Shire Council
- East Gippsland Shire Council
- Kingborough Council
- Mackay Regional Council
- District Council of Mallala
- Moyne Shire Council
- Peron Naturaliste Partnership
- Wattle Range Council
- Tiwi Land Council
- Far North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils
- Western Australia Local Government Association
- Sydney Coastal Councils
- Association of Bayside Municipalities, Victoria
NCCARF would like to express its thanks to the Tool Development Partnership for its unfailing support in 2015-16, and looks forward to continuing interaction with the Tool Implementation Partnership through the review and finalisation process.
