About the Marine Adaptation Network
The Marine Adaptation Network aims to implement a strong interdisciplinary organisational framework to engage researchers, governments and industry in a way that will enhance adaptive capacity and reduce vulnerability of Australia’s marine biodiversity and resources to climate change risks.
The Adaptation Research Network for Marine Biodiversity and Resources (or simply, the Marine Adaptation Network) is hosted within the Institute for Marine & Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania and is led by Associate Professor Neil Holbrook (Convenor).
From 2009 to mid-2013, the Marine Adaptation Network is working closely with the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) to deliver on its vision to build adaptive capacity and adaptive response strategies for the effective management of marine biodiversity and living marine resources under climate change.
The Marine Adaptation Network comprises a holistic framework of five connecting marine themes (integration; biodiversity and resources; communities; markets; and policy) that cross-cuts climate change risk, marine biodiversity and resources, socio-economics, policy and governance, and includes ecosystems and species from the tropics to Australian Antarctic waters. < Back
