Designed to inform policymakers and other interested parties of relevant climate adaptation research for Queensland, this report draws together and presents key findings and lessons from individual NCCARF research reports and a selection of other supporting studies identified through a literature review. The main themes utilised in this synthesis are increasing resilience and adaptive capacity; learning from experience; costing, financing and funding adaptation; limits and barriers to adaptation; maladaptation; and the timing and scale of adaptation. A description of current and future climate conditions for Queensland is included, as well as the state’s expected climate change impacts by sector, and current adaptation priorities and activities. It concludes by summarizing Queensland's main adaptation challenges, policy implications and key lessons for decision makers.
