In this report, policies for assessing effects of climate change risk and uncertainty on water-supply provision are discussed. The emphasis is on analytical insights derived using option-pricing arguments. Attention is also paid to portfolio approaches, problems of uncertainty and catastrophic risk.
The Framing Adaptation project explored different ways of describing and approaching climate change adaptation at the conceptual, theoretical and operational levels. Focusing on local government in Victoria, it investigated how organisations understand and interpret adaptation, how they conduct adaptation planning and make decisions in the...
The VCCCAR funded project, Governance Models for Adaptation and Natural Disaster Risk Management, is investigating Victorian legal, financial and institutional frameworks for managing the risks of extreme events and natural disasters. It will identify specific risk management mechanisms in land use planning, catchment management, natural...
Design charettes (a form of intensive workshop) were held in Bendigo and Sea Lake, engaging community members, local government and state government staff and academics in an intensive process of envisaging and designing alternative futures for their locality based on an understanding of local conditions...
The focus of the paper is the use of data that informs adaptation – how it can be collated, updated and disseminated, and how it can be incorporated into instruments to affect adaptation by governments, communities and individuals.
This think tank brought together 36 participants from the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM), Victorian State Government departments, local government, research and academic institutions and industry users of climate information.
The field of climate change adaptation economics is in its infancy and is currently grappling with the complex interactions and uncertainties that confound estimates about the probable costs, benefits and distribution of climate change impacts and adaptation options.
The impacts of climate change for ports will include increased run-off and siltation requiring increased dredging; disturbance and distribution of currently entrained heavy metals and other pollutants; delays to berthing and cargo handling; coastal flooding; and required engineering upgrades to wharfs, piers, gantries and other...
The project examines the way in which law and governance arrangements shape climate change adaptation in Victoria. This project focuses particularly on the legal, regulatory and institutional dimensions of managing the risks posed by extreme events such as floods and heatwaves (climate risks).
This policy paper looks at the existential climate-related security risk through a scenario set thirty years into the future.
