Abstract

[Extract] Stream 2 of the Commonwealth Government's Regional NRM Planning for Climate Change Fund supports the project "Knowledge to manage land and sea: A framework for the future" run by a consortium of scientists from James Cook University (JCU) and CSIRO. This report is the second major product of the consortium project, building on the first report: Climate Change Issues and Impacts in the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster Region (Hilbert et al. 2014). This second report provides syntheses of current knowledge about potential adaptation pathways and opportunities in response to climate change in the Wet Tropics Cluster (WTC) region (see below) across all relevant NRM sectors. The report is framed by the specific topics and issues defined by the NRM groups in the Wet Tropics Cluster (WTC) region (Appendix A), reflecting the planning processes and priorities of these groups as well as the characteristics of their regional communities. This report has two major aims:

1. To provide a review of potential adaptation pathways and opportunities across all NRM sectors in the WTC region, including a review of potential options for adaptation of species to climate change

2. To provide preliminary information about particular directions for adaptation in the Wet Tropics Cluster, based on collaboration with the four NRM bodies via the Brokering Hub.
