FRDC- DCCEE: estuarine and nearshore ecosystems – assessing alternative adaptive management strategies for the management of estuarine and coastal ecosystems
James Cook University (JCU)
1. Synthesize and integrate all current knowledge, data, tools and processes for the development of a national assessment of impacts and adaptation strategies for management of estuarine and coastal marine ecosystem under Climate Change that takes account of bioregional differences and differences among estuary types.
2. Evaluate the key adaptation strategies recognising that there needs to be a process to harmonise adaptation strategies for the public benefit.
3. Develop tools and guidelines, at a National level, for developing adaptation strategies for the estuarine environment that take bioregional and typological differences among estuaries.
