In 2011, a National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plan (NARP) was developed for the terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity theme of climate change adaptation (Terrestrial NARP 2011). The Terrestrial NARP aims to identify priority research questions for climate change adaptation issues relevant to Australia's cities, towns and regions, including coastal communities and regions. This NARP was updated in 2013 (Terrestrial NARP 2013).

The purpose of this document is to review the Terrestrial NARP 2013 and this was done through a series of workshops with key stakeholders in 2015-16. The most important component of the NARPs is to identify and prioritise adaptation research questions that are important, often urgent, and will provide knowledge needed by adaptation stakeholders across Australia.

Based on the stakholder review, a total of 20 priority research questions (Table 1) are presented in this report within four research themes.
