The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility is a unique venture established by the Australian Government in 2008 to harness and coordinate the capabilities of Australia’s researchers, to generate and communicate the knowledge decision-makers need for successful adaptation to climate change.

The Facility is a Partnership between the Australian Government Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency and Griffith University, with a consortium of funding partners drawn from across the country:

  • Queensland Government
  • James Cook University
  • Macquarie University
  • Murdoch University
  • Queensland University of Technology
  • The University of Newcastle
  • University of Southern Queensland
  • University of the Sunshine Coast
A ten member Advisory Board oversees and guides the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility. 

Our Vision

Decision-makers have the information needed to adapt Australia successfully to climate change.

Our Mission
