Australia's National Adaptation Assessment Framework

The Australian Government has just released the first in what it has indicated will be a series of reports assessing how well-placed the nation is to adapt to the impacts of climate change that cannot be avoided by future greenhouse gas mitigation efforts. The report, Climate Adaptation Outlook, proposes a new assessment framework for the nation to evaluate progress toward meeting adaptation objectives.The framework asks three broad questions:

1. What drivers in society and the economy would promote good adaptation?
2. What activities would we expect to see now if Australia is adapting well?
3. What outcomes do we expect to see from good adaptation?
