Slide 1

Territorial Communities Driving Regional Impact Assessments Jo Mummery Head Land Management and Science Branch Presentation to the Second International Conference on Climate Impacts Assessments 30 th June 2004

Slide 2

Needs for Adaptable Regional Communities

Slide 3

How are we right now put? Information of likely change - Adequate national projections Temperature Rainfall Source: CSIRO 2001

Slide 4

Science information needs Resolution - scale for basic leadership Probabilistic examination Extreme occasions investigation Likely to end up more incessant and serious Huge financial effect - 2002/3 dry season: $6.6 billion & Gov\'t help of $1.2 billion Improved projections of amazing occasions perceptions, specific and high determination displaying Variability and change joins

Slide 6

Current comprehension of adjustment needs & choices Adaptation needs & alternatives investigated: Water assets (gaining from genuine 25% lessening in precipitation, 40% decrease in streamflow in sw WA) Analysis of horticultural choices (gaining from variability) Land use appropriateness Biodiversity and environmental change Some investigation of transport base Risk evaluation for human wellbeing Tools (financial investigation devices lacking) Sectoral expenses of environmental change impacts Overall-there is still far to go!

Slide 7

The route forward New Climate Change Adaptation Program Building national limit Improving the science/research base Assessing the expenses of effects/money saving advantage instruments Communication and engagement Integrated appraisal Developing effect and adjustment apparatuses Partnerships with States and industry to address national needs (TAR, national danger evaluation, interview) – water, horticulture, seaside urban communities and foundation, key locales (MDB, sw WA, CGBR)

Slide 10

The CGBR area Extremely critical normal qualities (2 World Heritage Areas) Regional economy depends intensely on tourism and farming Population around 250,000 Gross territorial item: $4.4 billion dad Tourism worth approx. $1 billion dad Vulnerable to expanded sea & environmental temperatures, ocean level ascent, great occasions (tornados, storm surges) Vulnerability recognized in TAR

Slide 11

Overall outline - wide partner base the key Scoping study for full evaluation – advantage exchange open doors 150 partner welcomed to workshops upheld by master presentations. Partners split into 3 bunches Workshops steps: Stakeholders recognize ebb and flow atmosphere issues & key provincial sensitivities upheld by master presentations Stakeholders decide non-atmosphere stresses & environmental change impacts on district, businesses & groups Stakeholders distinguish conceivable activities to manage impacts, including boundaries & collaborations Stakeholders organize issues & activities for the locale

Slide 12

Step 1: atmosphere conditions Natural biological community maintainability helpless to temp, rf and great occasions Tourism – temp extremes in summer (guest number decay amid coral blanching periods) Human wellbeing – vector borne maladies atmosphere interfaces (certain mosquitoes more hard to control with expanding temp and rf) Urban base – lodging configuration and water arrangement vulnerable to amazing occasions Agriculture – variability essential profitability driver. Control of nuisances and weeds impacted by temp, rf. Fisheries – tornados demolish living space Water assets – water system and ecological streams reliant on varieties in rf and vanishing, amazing occasions pertinent Overall – no curve balls, yet monstrously important for partners. Given strong data base to thought of environmental change and effects

Slide 13

Step 2: environmental change impacts Stakeholders created grids connecting division issues to atmosphere properties Agriculture (sugar, cultivation, cows/meat) Strongly atmosphere subordinate with differing impacts between ventures Potential transient  in plant generation (CO 2 - preparation) More than balance by long haul  dampness accessibility Changes in vermin/weed frequency bring more prominent push and increment costs Heat weight on domesticated animals – decreased milk yield (4-9%) Reduced field creation (10-30% by 2070) Natural frameworks and biodiversity Major issue – extent of biodiversity misfortune, restricted reversibility Sea level ascent sway on waterfront biological systems (e.g. mangroves) Reduced dampness for wet tropical rainforests Endemic vertebrates lessened circulation by 60% with 1 °C  Weed spread to upland regions (connections to different anxieties)

Slide 14

Step 2: environmental change impacts ctd Water assets Combination of populace development and increments in temp and dissipation will expand request Possible decreased water quality through expanded recurrence of lethal algal sprouts. May be counterbalanced by more amazing precipitation occasions Extreme precipitation occasions will expand measure of suspended residue, negative stream on consequences for reef Illustrates intricacy of partner distinguished cooperations Challenges to stormwater foundation with compelling precipitation occasions

Slide 15

Current 1-in-100 year storm surge degree 1-in-100 year storm surge degree under 2xCO 2 conditions Coastal districts, GBR  exceptional tornados and tempest surges: noteworthy harm to framework and key administrations (Figure underneath tempest surge sway on Cairns) Ocean warming, ocean level ascent, coral fading

Slide 16

Step 3: P ossible adjustment activities Adaptation choices were recognized by partners eg Agriculture and water Cropping and brushing:  water proficiency, species choice and alter administration cycles Pests, sicknesses & wellbeing Design fitting weed and bug controls (range focused on, enhanced location), enhance compelling climate early cautioning frameworks Natural frameworks and GBR Lower other ecological burdens to enhance versatile limit Mangrove cradle to encourage inland withdraw (different advantages) Coastal and urban districts Rehabilitate disintegration inclined beach front zones New building guidelines for more great climate, advancement arranging Stormwater outline

Slide 17

Step 4: P rioritise issues & activities for the area Stakeholder were requested that organize sway significance and adjustment alternatives - Priority 1: Water quality and accessibility Priority 2: The Great Barrier Reef and tourism Priority 3: Agriculture Etc Regional financial issues drove need setting Addressing learning crevices a cross-cutting need, especially financial effects, higher determination situations, and coordinated examinations

Slide 18

Some difficulties and exploration needs uncovered from study Regional projections - spatially comprehend helplessness and danger at worldly and spatial scales required for basic leadership Limited comprehension of connections between biophysical & financial effects - incorporated evaluations for key areas required, and instruments to survey numerous effects at territorial scale Regional demonstrating of area use and financial change – expected to look at exchange offs between various area uses and segments under various situations Need to fuse environmental change in sectoral models Enhanced observing required eg ocean level ascent

Slide 19

Lessons and where to from here Need to formalize adjustment – better connections amongst Govts and industry, and expulsion of conflicting approaches Utilizing correspondence systems – choices, what works Adaptation methodologies require engagement of provincial power, group and industry Local answers for nearby issues AGO is exploring directing a full incorporated appraisal of the locale as a team with State Governments and examination offices Potential advantage exchange of strategies to different districts

Slide 20

Case Study 2: getting ready for environmental change

Slide 21

Planning for environmental change The connection Regional and Local Government p lanners have a key part in helping groups adjust to environmental change and arranging choices need to consider environmental change Many troublesome and conceivably unreasonable effects The task The PIA: Sustainable Regional and Urban Communities Adapting to Climate Change

Slide 22

Regional and urban groups adjusting to environmental change Four-phase venture went for setting up our groups and enterprises for the effects connected with environmental change through conveyance of toolbox for organizers Project has been driven and attempted by an expert body (the Planning Institute of Australia) worried about environmental change impacts Sponsored by assorted vested parties (Govts, Insurance Australia Group, City Councils and so on) Into stage 3 and right now grant winning procedure!

Slide 23

The stages Scoping study-counsel to set up the task need Issues paper-setting up the premise for engagement of organizers Developing the instruments for organizers and groups Refining devices and limit working through provincial cooperation

Slide 24

Stage 1-building up the need Scoping study to distinguish the present condition of learning in the arranging calling Extensive partner meeting 50 members were met traversing government and advisor organizers in addition to protection delegates

Slide 25

Stage 1: comes about

Slide 26

Stage 1: comes about No present devices, yet proposals included Risk administration system Land capacity Vulnerability appraisal Community discussion Regional level most suitable for environmental change Forecasts are seen as excessively questionable and need political and group support There is a desire broadly and globally that arranging will do \'something\'. (PIA 2002)

Slide 27

Stage 2: setting up the premise A progression of issues papers taking a gander at making arrangements for environmental change adjustment Climat
