An extensive review of recent literature on the topic of climate change adaptation and the Australian primary industries is available from PIARN. The report, written by PIARN Research Fellow Dr Lauren Rickards, is an interpretive overview of literature published between 2009 and 2012.

It was stimulated by the updating of Primary Industries Adaptation Research National Adaptation Research Plan, organised by the Australian National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility, and is structured around the Plan’s original research areas and questions.

The publication was motivated by two objectives:

  • To illustrate the broad, systemic thinking needed to understand the adaptation challenge and its many closely inter-related issues.
  • To highlight the relevance of broader literatures to those working on climate change adaptation, and vice versa, to accelerate engagement between different researcher communities.
