SEQCARI Hypothetical Case Study Elaboration


This report: Hypothetical Case Study Elaboration, is part of the
South East Queensland Climate Adaptation Research Initiative
(SEQ-CARI), a partnership between the Queensland and
Australian Governments, the CSIRO Climate Adaptation
National Research Flagship, Griffith University, University of
the Sunshine Coast and The University of Queensland.
South East Queensland (SEQ) is particularly vulnerable to
climate change because of its growing population and coastal
location. Human settlements, infrastructure, unique ecosystems,
and primary industries all face threats from more extreme
weather events, increased temperatures and altered rainfall
patterns as a result of increased greenhouse gas emissions.
Despite these risks and challenges, climate change may also
bring some economic and social opportunities.
SEQ-CARI aims to provide research knowledge to enable the
region to adapt and prepare for the impacts of climate change. It
will develop practical and cost-effective adaptation strategies to
assist decision-makers in government, industry and the
community. The initiative is the first comprehensive regional
study on climate change adaptation undertaken in Australia and
one of only a few worldwide. It is exploring both vulnerabilities
and adaptation options in response to climate change so that our
prosperous regional economy, environment and lifestyles can be
maintained into the future.
