This project applies an adaptive management planning approach to address climate change adaptation strategies in internationally significant wetlands and a set of indicators that could be monitored to promote increasingly informed decisions. It develops a strategic adaptive management framework (SAM) that could be transferred to other wetlands, including RAMSAR-listed wetlands supplied by rivers ranging from highly regulated to free flowing. It also provides an information platform that could assist managers (and the public) in calling up of data on biota, ecological processes, and a modelling capacity into a spatio-temporal interface. Both current management activities and available science were integrated into the outcomes. The project focussed on the Macquarie Marshes as a case study, where river regulation has affected their resilience and climate change is expected to increase the problem.
