Murray Basin NRM Climate-ready Restoration

The purpose of this document is to provide advice on the interpretation of biodiversity and climate change information, to inform strategic decisions regarding restoration activity, and hereby improving the chance that restoration activity will contribute to landscape conservation under future climates.It has three broad elements:

1. A broad framework for identifying where restoration is likely to contribute to biodiversity conservation under future climates, and under what circumstances climate change will have a strong influence on the nature of his restoration;
2. The application of this framework, at a landscape scale, to the landscapes of the MDB Cluster NRM Regions, with advice on how to interpret this analysis for the delivery of practical restoration programs.
3. What do we do with this information? Next steps.
