There’s a new report from the Carbon Disclosure Project on international companies and their business supply chains: ‘From Agreement to Action: Mobilizing suppliers toward a climate resilient world’. Using COP21 and the Paris Agreement as a starting point, the report looks at exposure to climate change and opportunities for adaptation. To read more about outcomes from COP21, see our December newsletter.
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.
NCCARF is currently developing a three year program (2014-17) to address the adaptation needs of decision makers and practitioners, especially in the coastal zone, as they deal with projected impacts such as more frequent and more intense heatwaves, increasing risk of flooding from rivers and the sea, and increasing coastal erosion.
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, please look through the Project Plan, or contact email@example.com
A series of factsheets featuring NCCARF's 140 research projects, organised by theme, sector, or state and territory. Each factsheet has a list of projects relevant to the theme, information on the investigators and delivery date, together with a short summary of each project.
