Regional scale collaboration on climate change adaptation is an important consideration for governments. This report is based on a project that explored the relationship between legal and policy frameworks and cross-border collaboration on climate change adaptation in the Australian Capital Region (ACR).
Focusing on the Australian capital region, this report argues that there is an opportunity now for regional planning that can integrate climate change adaptation, population growth, housing and infrastructure demand, services, and biodiversity conservation.
Australia’s critical window of opportunity to tackle climate change is closing, with a this report revealing Australia is falling behind the rest of the world and failing to tackle climate change, as pollution levels continue to rise.
This article demonstrates that climate change is exposing and exacerbating vulnerabilities within the structure of the Wheatbelt, which, in turn, is undermining the viability of traditional modes of family farming and forcing many farmers out of the agricultural sector.
To enable society to better manage the risks and opportunities arising from changes in climate, engagement between the users and the providers of climate information needs to be much more effective and should better link climate information with decision-making.
The bulk of climate research has tended to underplay the risk of lower-probability, higher impact events. However, if climate policymaking is to be soundly based, a reframing of scientific research within an existential risk-management framework is now urgently required.
The objective of this consultation paper is to outline the key features of the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) and seek stakeholder views on how these are performing.
This research describes a research-practice collaboration to support climate change planning. It highlights the potential benefits of investing in the capacity of researchers and natural resource management practitioners to engage in collaborative research partnerships.
