Wet Tropics NRM Collection


This collection contains materials produced by the Wet Tropics Cluster of the Climate Change
Impacts and Adaptation Research Grants Program. The Program aims to improve the capacity of
regional Natural Resource Management (NRM) organisations in Australia to plan for climate change.This program was developed as part of the Australian Government's Regional NRM Planning for Climate Change Fund.

The consortium was led by James Cook University, in collaboration with partner organisation CSIRO.

About the Cluster: The Wet Tropics NRM Cluster includes four NRM regions across north-eastern Queensland: Torres Strait, Cape York, Wet Tropics and Mackay-Whitsunday. It excludes areas of dry topics around Townsville. The Wet Tropics NRM region includes low-lying coastal areas, inland plains and subcoastal ranges and contains globally significant savannas, the vast majority of Australia’s tropical rainforests, wetlands and low lying tropical islands. The Cluster region contains the Wet Tropics and Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Areas, as well as a high proportion of the Great Barrier Reef catchment.

Repository ItemKey messages: Climate change impacts and issues in the Wet Tropics NRM cluster region
This brochure presents the key messages from the report Climate change issues and impacts in the Wet Tropics NRM cluster region
Repository Item Troff document (with manpage macros)Climate Change Issues and Impacts in the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster Region
This report presents a synthesis of current scientific knowledge in relation to the likely impacts of climate change in the Wet Tropics cluster region of northern Australia. This report is the first major output of the NRM Fund research project in the region.
Repository ItemAdaptation Pathways and Opportunities for the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster region (Volumes 1 and 2)
This report synthesises current scientific knowledge in relation to adaptation to climate change impacts in the Wet Tropics NRM cluster region of north Queensland. The report identifies and discusses potential adaptation options for different sectors. This information is intended to inform NRM stakeholder engagement and adaptation planning processes. This is a two-volume report.
Repository ItemSynthesis of climate change knowledge and planning practices carried out by the Wet Tropics Cluster Natural Resource Management (NRM) Organisations
This report provides a synthesis of local knowledge and experiences of climate change, specifically on how this knowledge was integrated with science and planning practice. We based this synthesis on the collection and review of 47 documents provided by the four Wet Tropics Cluster regional NRM organisations.
Repository Item VCS/ICS calendarClimate Change impacts in the Wet Tropics
Short dramatic film depicting the Wet Tropics cluster region of far north Queensland and projected threats and impacts from climate change.
Repository ItemUptake of climate change adptation pathways and opportunities into Wet Tropics CLuster NRM plans: System building in progress
This document is designed to capture progress and explain the underlying ideas about how knowledge sharing can support adaptation. We first present our interactive model which we are using to develop, conduct and evaluate the uptake of knowledge, and the methods we are using to collect data relevant to evaluating outcomes.
Repository Item Troff document (with manpage macros)Climate change and Biodiversity, Water, Pests, Industry, Communities and Coastal systems [Fact sheet series]
Fact sheets summarising projected changes in climate variables, together with likely impacts and potential adaptation options for six key NRM themes in the Wet Tropics NRM cluster (WTC) region.
Repository ItemTimeline of accumulation of climate change knowledge
This fact sheet is intended as a tool for communicating facts about the development of climate change knowledge, together with global responses to this information.
Repository ItemClimate change issues and impacts: Key messages
This brochure presents the key messages extracted from each chapter of the synthesis report Climate change issues and impacts int he Wet tropics cluster region (Hilbert et al., 2014).
Repository ItemSupporting Regional NRM organisations to update their NRM plans for adaptation to climate change
A conference publication paper describing the Wet Tropics cluster Brokering Hub model and summarising key NRM issues in relation to developing climate adaptation pathways.
Repository ItemImplementation of participatory monitoring and evaluation into Wet Tropics Cluster NRM Plans and processes
his report documents the implementation of participatory monitoring and evaluation into Wet Tropics Cluster NRM plans and processes, through the WTC Brokering Hub partnership.
Repository Item application/rls-services+xmlbiodiversity prioritization layers
Biodiversity prioritization layers for the Wet Tropics NRM cluster region. Developed by summing the modelled distributions of 69 terrestrial species (11 amphibians, five birds, 7 mammals and 46 reptiles.)
Repository ItemClimate space changes Terrain Region
A collection of habitat suitability maps in the Terrain NRM region. Showing modelled distributions for 1990, 2085 and the areas that are different.
Repository ItemCarbon Biodiversity overlap and prioritization Terrain Region
Maps of carbon and biodiversity overlaps for prioritization in the Terrain NRM region.
Repository ItemBiodiversity and climate change

Repository Item chemical/x-pdbMethod of Engagement on Climate Adaptation with Traditional Owners in the Great Barrier Reef Catchment
This document outlines our method of engagement with Traditional Owners in the Great Barrier Reef Catchment. There were two levels of engagement, one with the Traditional Owners focused on their country to develop strategies with them, the other on regional level engagement.
Repository Item text/texmacsWet Tropics Cluster Report - Climate Change in Australia Projections for Australia’s Natural Resource Management Regions: Cluster Reports
This report presents projections of future climate for the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster based on our current understanding of the climate system, historical trends and model simulations of the climate response to changing greenhouse gas and aerosol emissions. The report aims to assist regional decision-makers in understanding the important messages deduced from climate change projection modelling. It presents a range of emissions scenarios across multiple variables and years.
Repository ItemWet Tropics - Climate Change in Australia - Projections for Australia's NRM Regions [brochure]
One of a set of brochures that summarises key climate change projections for each of the eight NRM clusters. The brochures are a useful tool for community engagement.
