National Adaptation Research Plans

The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plans (NARPs) are research plans, addressing specific topics, which aim to identify critical gaps in the information required by governments, industry and the community to develop and implement effective adaptation responses to climate change. The gaps that are identified through this process can be used to set research priorities.

NARPs have been developed around nine priority themes. During 2016, five of these are being revised. Please follow the links below.
