Adaptation Research Projects

imageThe National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plan (NARP) for Marine Biodiversity and Resources identifies research priorities in five sectoral areas: marine aquaculture, commercial and recreational fishing, conservation management, tourism and recreational uses, and cross cutting issues. The NARP, developed by NCCARF, is supporting 14 adaptation research projects currently underway which are responding to these priorities.  These projects are funded through partnership between the DCCEEand the FRDC with the Network involved in the dissemination of project updates through the Marine Adaptation Bulletin, Information Sheets and Flyers.
