Abstract

This document focuses on the Natural Resource Management (NRM) sector, in particular Victoria?s Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs). It reviews existing academic and grey literatures climate change adaptation in the context of NRM and analyses the institutional context of CMAs in relation to climate change adaptation. It includes a review of international, Australian and Victorian published material on adaptation in NRM, with a view to appreciating the status of planning for and responding to climate change impacts. The analysis of interviews conducted among Victoria?s CMAs identified a range of sectoral and organisational adaptation barriers, needs and capacities.
