East Coast Cluster Research Projects


This report is a collection of brief descriptions of the research projects to be undertaken for the East Coast Cluster. The aim of the document is to provide more information on each of the research elements and to facilitate input from the regional body planners and other researchers to each of the research projects. More detailed descriptions of the expected project outputs will also facilitate use of the research by the regional NRM bodies.

The projects include:

  • Needs analysis (GU)
  • Downscaled climate projections and impacts research (OEH)
  • Coastal vulnerability assessment (first pass assessment for the cluster, detailed assessments for specific areas) (UoW)
  • Stocktake of available biophysical data and models, and agricultural species distribution models under possible climate futures (UQ)
  • Socio-economic vulnerability assessments (USC)
  • Carbon farming opportunities (Herbarium)
  • Integrated assessments for resource sectors (CSIRO)
  • Institutional adaptive capacity (UQ)
  • Planning packages and research translation (GU)
  • Policy appraisal through scenario planning workshops (GU).
