Vulnerability to Climate Change: Hunter & Central Coasts

This study assesses the vulnerability of the NSW Central Coast and Lower Hunter region (NSW) to the impacts of climate change. The primary objective was an interdisciplinary appraisal of the vulnerability of infrastructure and natural ecosystems to the impact of sea level rise, storm surge and intense rainfall. It uses climate change projections produced by the IPCC and CSIRO for the years 2030 and 2070. Under this scenario the projected value of sea level rise in 2030 is 146mm and in 2070 it is 471mm, relative to 1990 levels.
