NCCARF policy guidance brief 1: Building resilient coastal communities and ecosystems

Source(s):  National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF)

This brief addresses key challenges to effectively adapting Australia to a variable and changing climate, providing high-level policy advice designed for use by policy makers at Commonwealth and State level. It deals with coastal management under climate change and is built upon the experience of New South Wales, but is relevant to planning for the coastal zone throughout Australia. The principal risks to people and infrastructure along Australia’s coasts are from storm damage and inundation of cyclones, flooding and sea-level rise, future sea-level rise, present-day sea level, sea surface temperatures.
