Thematic Areas

Activities of the network will be largely coordinated around five key 'adaptation' themes:

These thematic areas will provide the focus for network research, identifying issues of national significance as well as those of importance in a regional context. Research teams within these thematic areas will facilitate interaction among discipline areas and inform network researchers of activities in other themes.

A key role of the network will be to synthesise existing and emerging research (under the five themes) and to facilitate the establishment of research teams to work on priority areas identified in the National Adaptation Research Plan for Water Resources and Freshwater Biodiversity.
