The Climate Change and Western Australian Aquatic Ecosystems
Impacts and Adaptation Responses 2011 REPORT CARD

summarises present knowledge of impacts of climate change
on Western Australian aquatic ecosystems and identifies knowledge gaps and
adaptation options. The report card is based on a more comprehensive report
called Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Strategies for Western Australian
Aquatic Ecosystems (due for completion November 2011). The information was contributed by over 100 key stakeholders following the Climate Change and WA Wetlands and Waterways
Symposium 2010. This symposium included stakeholders representing government, non-government, academic organisations and the community, and was convened as part of the Western Australian NCCARF Freshwater Biodiversity network.  The project received funding from the Department of Water, Government of Western Australia (NRM Program), National Climate Change and Adaptation Research Facility and was supported by Murdoch University and the Department of Environment and Conservation.
