This document summarises the key findings of the NCCARF Synthesis and Integrative Research project 'Limits to climate change adaptation in the Coorong, Murray Mouth and Lakes Alexandrina and Albert.

The project final report identifies and documents limits to adaptation and adaptation pathways for the Coorong Wetlands. It seeks to determine the extent to which acceptable substitutes can be found for things that are lost, for example because of climate change. It uses participatory approaches to ensure local knowledge, perspectives and information take their place alongside scientific knowledge when examining limits to adaptation and adaptation pathways. In this manner the project provides substantial support for capacity building and exchange of knowledge between community-based and technical organisations.
