Conference hosts
The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility hosted by Griffith University is an initiative of, and funded by, the Australian Government,
with additional funding from Griffith University, Macquarie University, the Queensland University of Technology, James Cook University, The University
of Newcastle, Murdoch University, University of Southern Queensland, and University of the Sunshine Coast. The role of the National Climate Change
Adaptation Research Facility is to lead the research community in a national interdisciplinary effort to generate the information needed by decision
makers in government and in vulnerable sectors and communities to manage the risks of climate change impacts.
CSIRO is Australia’s national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse scientific research organisations in the world. Our role is to
deliver great science and innovative solutions for industry, society and the environment. We work on new ways to improve our quality of life,
as well as the economic and social performance of a number of industry sectors through research and development.

Welcome
Welcome to the 2014 national adaptation conference
Climate Adaptation Future Challenges
We are delighted to welcome approximately 400 participants to this event.
This 2014 Conference will showcase the growing body of climate change adaptation knowledge in Australia and
internationally, how this knowledge is being used by communities, governments and industry to adapt to the impacts of
climate change, the contribution of adaptation science to planning and policy making across Australia, and how robust
adaptation decisions can be made in the face of uncertainty.
Climate already has a significant impact on our lives
and livelihoods, particularly through
extreme events such as storms,
cyclones, floods and droughts.
Climate change, brought about
by increasing greenhouse gas
emissions, will result in even
greater impacts through
warmer temperatures, rising
sea levels and more intense
floods, droughts, and bushfires.
While change is inevitable,
there is little to be gained by
getting caught up in doom and
gloom scenarios of the future.
Instead, we must proactively plan for
and adapt to change, in order to minimize the negative impacts and take advantages of any opportunities that arise.
This is a challenge for decision-making at all levels.
Recognition of this challenge led to the formation of the National Climate Change
Adaptation Research Facility and the CSIRO Climate Adaptation
Flagship approximately 4 years ago.

Since then, these initiatives have worked to progress climate adaptation research and knowledge transfer in Australia in
partnership with the communities, governments and industries that have the responsibility to adapt Australia successfully
to climate change.
Building on the success of the NCCARF/CSIRO 2010 International Climate Change Adaptation Conference, the 2014
National Adaptation Conference provides an ideal platform to highlight Australia’s growing and significant contribution
towards global understanding of climate change impacts and opportunities and options to adapt to these impacts.
With an exciting program of over 270 presenters, focused plenary and panel sessions, together with side
meetings, and social functions, we are sure that the Conference will provide a golden opportunity for
participants to discuss the latest developments in adaptation research, and to share information,
practical experiences and contacts.

a national partnership to deliver a

climate-adapted
future

Generating the information needed by decisionmakers in government, vulnerable sectors and
communities to manage the risks of climate
change impacts
NCCARF is commencing a second phase of activity for
2014-2017 focussed on the climate change adaptation
needs of Australia’s coastal managers, particularly
those working in local government. By working closely
with the communities of researchers and end users,
NCCARF will deliver information and build capacity
enabling decision makers to understand and manage
coastal climate risks, especially those from rising sea
levels and changing patterns of storm surge.
NCCARF will re-establish its Adaptation Networks
to support this activity. It will explore new and
innovative ways to deliver climate change information
to decision makers.

Partners
NCCARF is a partnership of
eight universities undertaking work in
climate change adaptation:
Griffith University (host)
James Cook University
Macquarie University
Murdoch University
Newcastle University
Queensland University of Technology
University of Southern Queensland
University of the Sunshine Coast
We are supported by the Australian
government through the Department
of the Environment.
