Identifying low risk climate change adaptation in catchment management while avoiding unintended consequences

Lukasiewicz, A.; Finlayson, C.M; Pittock, James

Description

Inherent in every adaptation measure are risks, costs and benefits. A challenge for decision-makers is how to choose adaptations that reduce risks from climate change impacts and provide overwhelmingly beneficial outcomes. This project focused on three catchments in the Murray-Darling Basin to test a method for more integrative climate change adaptation that increased resilience and avoided maladaptation. Water management under the highly variable Murray-Darling Basin climate has lessons...[Show more]; Inherent in every adaptation measure are risks, costs and benefits.
