PROJECT 2.12 – COMPLETED
Sea-level projections for NCCARF
The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) is developing CoastAdapt, a coastal climate risk management tool, which will provide practical guidance on how to manage the risks from climate change and sea-level rise, together with the associated physical, social and economic risks.
CoastAdapt is currently in beta release. The final version will be available in early 2017.
In a project jointly funded by NCCARF, we provided the latest projections of sea-level rise for CoastAdapt. There are projections for each coastal local government area in Australia, including all mainland and Tasmanian councils and the Torres Strait Islands.
We also developed information for guidance material and stakeholder workshops to ensure that coastal planners and managers can use the sea-level rise projections to aid in decision making and planning for future coastal change.

This project is contributing to meeting the following climate challenge:
The projections developed in this project, and delivered through CoastAdapt, will allow for better coastal planning and management decisions.
