NCCARF policy guidance brief 2: Ensuring Australia’s urban water supplies under climate change

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 the challenge of managing the urban water supply under climate change. The example location is south-west Western Australia (SWWA), which is experiencing a long-term drying trend linked to climate change that will likely persist. The water management response contains useful lessons for a nation likely to experience similar conditions in the future.

The policy guidance in this brief was developed based on a regional workshop held in Perth, Western Australia, and attended by policy makers and managers in the industry, representatives from state and local government, researchers from Murdoch University and CSIRO, Robert Kay (Adaptive Futures), and NCCARF staff.
