This is a summary of the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plan (NARP) for Freshwater Biodiversity, developed in 2011 to identify research required to provide decision makers within government, industry and communities with the information they need to effectively respond and adapt to the impacts of climate change on freshwater biodiveristy.

The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plan for Freshwater Biodiversity supports efforts to identify climate adaptation research priorities for freshwater species and ecosystems. The research will support governments, conservation agencies, landowners, community organisations and individuals to implement effective climate change adaptation initiatives. These initiatives will take advantage of opportunities for freshwater biodiversity that result from climate change, and reduce unavoidable detrimental climate change impacts.
