|Framing adaptation responses in the Victorian context|
This project funded by the Victorian Centre for Climate Change Adaptation Research (VCCCAR) and coordinated by the Victorian Government Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) aims to develop and test an operational framing of climate change adaptation, which will act as a decision-making ‘roadmap’ to better inform policy and practice by Victorian authorities at the local and regional levels. This project seeks to translate scientific and conceptual discourse on adaptation into a language more accessible to end-users, such as State and local decision-makers, to effectively support adaptation activity and the building of local adaptive capacity.
4 areas of inquiry will address the following framing issues:
1) Development of an overarching framework for adaptation (the ‘roadmap’),
Project partners include: DSE, the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV), CSIRO, the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) and local governments in the case study locations (Port Fairy, City of Melbourne, and Bendigo).
