2014-05 NRM planning project - Your Climate: Primary industries

This is one of a set of factsheets provide information about the Your Climate program launched in late 2014 by Cape York NRM for the Australian Government. The aim of the project was to gather information about how the climate is changing on the land and in the sea. A significant portion of that information was gathered by community engagement and interviews. This information was used to advise the Australian Government on the allocation of funding on the Cape York Peninsula. This factsheet looks at the perspective of pastoralists on the Cape, focusing on their in depth knowledge of the land they own and changes occuring thereon to support climate change monitoring for the Your Climate project.

2014-03 Healthy Country 17: A new year in NRM

Issue 17 of the Healthy Country looks at a new year in Natural Resource Management in the Cape York Peninsula. 

This issue includes articles about addressing threats to biodiversity such as late season wildfires by raising community awareness, taking a look at the State Goverment's (then) new planning process regarding the water quality of the Cape York Peninsula's water resources, and how Cape York Landcare Inc. had been making an impact to feral weed and animal populations through the distribution of spray packs, herbicide, and drip torches to pastoralists and land owners on the cape.

Among other shorter articles lies a public service announcement about correctly extinguising camp fires, and the potential devastating repurcussions of merely burying them.

2014-01 Adaptation Pathways and Opportunities for the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster region: Volume 1. Introduction, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services

This report was created to present information intended to assist in the discussion of the impacts of climate change in the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster (WTC) region and necessary adaptation to those impacts. Planned adaptation is guaranteed to have better outcomes than reactive responses to the situation triggered by catastrophic events such as drout or cyclones. THe report reflects on ideas presented within scientific literature relating to adaptation to climate change for different sectors however the report does not present an analysis of the cost, benefits, and impacts that adaptations might have to the community. This report was created with the intention of supporting a negotiation process on adaptation to climate change in the Wet Tropics.

2014-01 Adaptation Pathways and Opportunities for the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster region: Volume 2. Infrastructure, Industry, Indigenous peoples, Social adaptation, Emerging planning frameworks, Evolving methodologies and Climate adaptation planning in practice.

This report is the follow up to volume 1 of the Adaptation Pathways and Opportunities for the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster region report and follows up on the broad, discussion stimulating information presented in the first report. This report looks at these plans in action and the impacts to industry, indigenous peoples, and infrastructure that adaptation to climate change might have.

2014-01 Information to accompany the report Adaptation Pathways and Opportunities for the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster region.

This document acts as supporting summary information from the Adaptation Pathways and Opportuniteis for the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster region (volumes 1 and 2) and is not to be used as a stand alone document as misinterpretation of key messages, summaries, and information is possible. Table 1 is a compilation of 'key messages' from each chapter of the report whereas the 'in-a-nutshell' summaries are compiled in Table 2, this information is made available for NRM partners to prepare stakeholder engagement material in an easy and time effective manner.

2014-01 Climate Change Issues and Impacts in the Wet Tropics NRM Cluster Region

This report was the first major product of a consortium project of scientists from James Cook Univeristy and CSIRO and was funded by steam 2 of the Regional NRM Planning for Climate Change Fund. It is a synthesis of then current knowledge on the potential threats and impacts of climate change in the Wet Tropics Cluster region across all sectors that operate there. This report focuses not on adaptation options but rather frames possible impacts and threats that would need to be adapted to. Much of the uncertainty about potential impacts stemmed from a lack of certainty in climate change models and weather patterns.

2014-01 Plants, Animals, Habitats, and Climate Change

This is the first of a series of fact sheets created to accompany the series of reports regarding impacts and adaptation informaton on climate change in australia for it's NRM regions. This fact sheet summarises the threats of climate change on native plants, animals, and their respective habitats as well as what can be done in the region to prevent the impact of climate change for native plants and animals in the wet tropics. The fact sheets also all include a summary and a "What's happening in your region" section for other NRM groups to fill out so that the documents can be catered to certain geo-specific areas.

2014-01 Healthy Communities and Climate Change

This is the second of a series of fact sheets created to accompany the series of reports regarding impacts and adaptation informaton on climate change in australia for it's NRM regions. This fact sheet summarises the threats of climate change on communities in the Cape York Peninsula and what can be done to effectively adapt and deal with the impacts that climate change has brought and is to bring in the wet tropics. The fact sheets also all include a summary and a "What's happening in your region" section for other NRM groups to fill out so that the documents can be catered to certain geo-specific areas.

2014-01 Invasive Species and Climate Change

This is the third of a series of fact sheets created to accompany the series of reports regarding impacts and adaptation informaton on climate change in australia for it's NRM regions. This fact sheet summarised the changes that climate change will have on invasive species on the Cape York Peninsula and how the threat of invasive species and climate change can be minimzed. The fact sheets also all include a summary and a "What's happening in your region" section for other NRM groups to fill out so that the documents can be catered to certain geo-specific areas.

2014-01 Coastal Communities and Climate Change

This is the first of a series of fact sheets created to accompany the series of reports regarding impacts and adaptation informaton on climate change in australia for it's NRM regions. This fact sheet summarises the threats of climate change on coastal communities within the wet tropics and how these threats can be minimized. The fact sheets also all include a summary and a "What's happening in your region" section for other NRM groups to fill out so that the documents can be catered to certain geo-specific areas.
