National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF)

 

Description

The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) works to support decision makers throughout Australia as they prepare for, and manage the risks of climate change and sea-level rise.

NCCARF is funded by the Australian Government, who has committed $9 million over three years (2014-17) to its work.

A particular area of focus for NCCARF is providing guidance for dealing with long-term planning issues. A three year project is currently being carried out to address the needs of adaptation decision makers and practitioners, especially those in a coastal zone, as they deal with the projected impacts of climate change, such as frequent and more intense heatwaves, increasing risk of flooding, and increasing coastal erosion. As part of this project, NCCARF is developing an online tool to help local governments and other relevant organisations understand deal with climate change impacts.

The NCCARF has also conducted a number of research projects which look at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander climate resilience, and the adaptive capacity of these communities.

NCCARF is hosted by Griffith University in Queensland.
