The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) and Cath Moran have been engaged by the State to develop a Climate Adaptation Plan (B&E CAP) for Biodiversity and Ecosystems.

Participation is sought from managers of Queensland's biodiversity and ecosystems, researchers in the field of climate change adaptation in natural systems, to the development of a state-wide adaptation plan for Queensland's biodiversity and ecosystems.

Three regional workshops as follows:

Brisbane 13th June - Register to attend here

The workshops will provide a forum for:

Those unable to can provide feedback on a Discussion Paper and on-line survey at:
