Abstract

[Extract] The Commonwealth of Australia, represented by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, contracted James Cook University to undertake a study titled: Understanding climate change driven coastal erosion and inundation on Torres Strait communities and the development of adaptation options. The project undertakes an assessment of the risks of climate change driven coastal erosion and inundation of Torres Strait island communities, identifies and assesses specific adaptation options, and documents those options preferred by the communities. The project extends the work of a project completed on the central islands of Masig, Poruma, Warraber and Iama (see details in Section 2). It focuses on the 14 Torres Strait island communities on 13 islands that were not covered in the earlier project (Figure 1). These communities are: Erub (Darnley), Mer (Murray) and Ugar (Stephen) (volcanic islands); Kubin and St. Pauls (on Moa Island), Badu, Mabuiag, Dauan, Waiben (Thursday), Kiriri (Hammond), Muralug (Prince of Wales), Ngurupai (Horn) (continentaltype islands); Boigu and Saibai (low muddy islands)
