Our climate is already locked into a period of unavoidable change; necessitating adaptation to deal with what is already happening and what is yet to come. A challenge for decision-makers is how to choose adaptations that reduce risks from climate change and provide beneficial outcomes.
To help address this challenge, we have developed a “Incorporating Climate Change Adaptation into Catchment Management: A User Guide”. This Guide explains the Catchment Assessment Framework (CAF) which is designed to help managers to systematically assess the risks, costs and benefits of different NRM actions to identify low-risk, no-regret measures for climate change adaptation.
Comments and feedback on the Guide would be much appreciated.
