NCCARF’s evidence-based Policy Information Briefs address key challenges to effective adaptation to Australia’s variable and changing climate. They provide high-level policy advice designed for use by policy-makers at Commonwealth and State level. This Brief addresses the challenge of supporting the future of a well-adapted Great Barrier Reef. It was developed through a consultation workshop in Townsville together with extensive exchange with relevant stakeholders and experts. After establishing the climate context and describing the GBR's current and future stresses and impacts, this Brief outlines the key actions needed to support the future of a well-adapted GBR. It also outlines the potential adaptation strategies that were identified by practitioners and experts during the workshop in Townsville.
