[Extract] This chapter provides an update on progress from the 'Participatory Scenarios and Knowledge Integration Node' of the Wet Tropics Cluster (WTC) region. Since the first workshop, led by the 'Participatory Scenarios and Knowledge Integration Node' in April 2013, members of this research node, in collaboration with the natural resource management (NRM) organisations, have initiated a wide range of research activities, based on the findings from this workshop and discussions with the four NRM organisations of the Wet Tropics Cluster. Appendix B summarises these transdisciplinary research activities, some of which are completed, while others are in progress. Our transdisciplinary research is showing that, based on the differences identified in the initial workshop with members of the Brokering Hub and discussions with staff of the four NRM organisations, the research needed to support these four NRM organisations in their planning for climate change differs considerably. This is not only a reflection of the differences between the four NRM regions in their biogeography, demography, and governance but also a reflection of past and current research activities carried out in these four NRM regions such as through the National Environmental Research Program (NERP) and the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC).
