Coastal Urban Climate Futures in South East Australia from Wollongong to Lakes Entrance is an investigation into possible coastal urban futures to 2030 and beyond. The study focus is on coastal adaptation in the context of climate change. It is broad in its scope by considering environmental, social and economic change in the south east coastal region. It has a multi-disciplinary approach to the spatial and temporal dimension in considering action on the ground. It involves seven local government areas, two Australian eastern sea board states and several regional organisations and decision makers, thus exploring critical governance issues. The research uses a range of methods, including a review of relevant literature and government reports, local case studies, targeted focus groups and fieldwork. The outcome is an integrated framework for describing what a climate adapted coastal community may be like in 2030.

A report prepared by Dr Bob Webb (ANU Climate Change Institute) for the ACT Office of the Commissioner for Sustainability and Environment, which included a synthesis of recent and current work at the national, regional and local levels relevant to potential climate futures for the ACT and region. It also assesses related climate risks to ACT nature reserves (which can also be characterised as significant remnants of the South Eastern Australian grassy woodlands and grasslands ecosystems, now amongst the most threatened ecosystems in Australia), and proposes responses to these risks.
