NCCARF Policy Guidance Brief 12: Policy and regulatory frameworks for adaptation

NCCARF’s evidence-based Policy Guidance Briefs address key challenges to effectively adapting Australia to a variable and changing climate, providing high-level policy advice designed for use by policy makers at Commonwealth and State level.

This Policy Guidance Brief deals with policy and regulatory frameworks for adaptation to climate change.

The policy guidance provided in this brief was developed at a workshop held in Sydney in May 2013. The workshop was attended by policymakers and managers from within the Australian Government, ACT Government, New South Wales Government, Queensland Government, Local Government NSW, Sydney Coastal Councils, Shoalhaven City Council, Ku-ring-gai Council, the National Water Commission, the Productivity Commission, Regional Australia Institute, James Ball (University of Technology, Sydney), Michael Howes (Griffith University), Adam Loch (University of South Australia) and NCCARF staff.
