Adaptation framework

National Climate Change Adaptation Framework

The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) agreed to the National Climate Change Adaptation Framework in April 2007. The Framework covers a range of cooperative actions between all Australian governments to begin to address key demands from business and the community for targeted information on climate change impacts and adaptation options.

The Framework guided action by jurisdictions to generate the information and tools needed by decision makers to adapt to climate change impacts over the subsequent years. The actions included producing climate projections; and generating knowledge on climate change risks to biodiversity, human health and sectors like agriculture and fisheries.
