How can communities adapt?

Right now, we’re asking the community about which adaptation options they think will work best in Swansea to address the hazards and potential impacts of rising sea and lake levels. But you might ask what options are available to help communities adapt?

The Australian National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) provides information about adaptation planning and options for communities, which greatly support the development of local adaptation plans.

The Coast Adapt website by NCCARF has a number of resources available to help individuals and coastal communities understand the issues and plan for potential impacts of sea level rise.


Coast Adapt has four broad categories for options:

Planning

Engineering

Ecosystem management

Social, community and educational measures
