Issues in coastal climate adaptation
Communities, governments and businesses in Australia need to work together on innovative strategies that will help adapt their coastal environments so they will be more resilient as extreme weather events driven by climate become more frequent.
Testing times for marine species
The crown-of-thorns starfish may end up being an unlikely hero in the quest to determine how best to help iconic marine species adapt to climate change.
Ecosystem-based adaptation through Locally Managed Marine Areas
CSIRO researchers have revisited an ecosystem-based adaptation project in Papua New Guinea ’s Kimbe Bay that’s using Locally Managed Marine Areas to protect near-shore marine ecosystems - and discovered lessons about making future projects more effective.
Pathways to prepare for and manage global change
Radical changes to our environment with climate change means we need to map adaptation pathways now that consider options and prepare us for future decisions.
Identifying opportunities in a changing climate
Planning for climate adaptation means looking at possible solutions to people’s needs rather than focussing on the likely problems.
Tackling climate change and regional security in the Pacific
We need to identify Pacific hotspots where climate change will exacerbate other stresses and act to support these places before a crisis happens.
A new climate adaptation landscape
Editorial: Understanding and managing the emergent risks of climate change requires a new focus for mitigation and adaptation responses.
Energy Futures in a Town Like Alice
Today’s energy systems will not be sufficient in 2050, and remote Australian communities are likely to bear the brunt. Scenarios workshops held in Alice Springs are helping design energy solutions for the future.
