    We are opening two calls for people and organisations to join us in the first steps of production of the Coastal Climate Risk Management Tool. The first is for case studies of adaptation action, to illustrate examples of good practice, and even where barriers were encountered or there were unintended consequences. The second is for Tool Development Partners - potential end-user organisations that will partner with NCCARF over the next 12 months in the development of the Tool. Please visit the links - we look forward to hearing from you.

    We will attend meetings of the Investors’ Group on Climate Change in Sydney and the TERN Australian Transect Network in Adelaide, to present and discuss current thinking on the NCCARF Coastal Tool. Two new reports are now available from the NCCARF website, both developed as foundation for NCCARF’s Coastal Tool. The State of Play Report describes recent literature and developments on coastal adaptation in Australia. The Research Scoping Report begins the process of identifying knowledge gaps that could be usefully filled by short research projects.
