This week, NCCARF has released publications from its synthesis program, which aims to produce accessible and up-to-date information on climate risks focussed on the needs of adaptation practitioners and decision-makers. Consultation workshops are being held in Darwin and Brisbane for the beta version of CoastAdapt.
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.
