NCCARF is making a call for new case studies for CoastAdapt. If your organisation has been planning for adaptation, or carrying out an adaptation project, or building community awareness, we’d like to hear from you. If you’d like to talk to someone about a possible case study, please contact Marilee Campbell. If you’re ready to submit a case study, please go here for further information. The call closes on 23 March. There are prizes!
The call for Adaptation Champions 2017-18 is open until 28 February. Champions will be chosen in 4 categories: Individual, Community, Business and Government. If you know someone who has advanced the cause of adaptation in Australia or the Asia-Pacific region, make sure they are recognised by making a nomination.
The Call for Abstracts for the Climate Adaptation 2018 conference, to be held in Melbourne 8-10 May 2018, closes on 9 February 2018. Please make sure to get your abstract in on time.
