This report proposes a national assessment framework to assess progress in adapting to the impacts of climate change. It is intended to help shape the response needed by business, government and communities. After outlining the framework as it applies to Australia, the report extends the framework to the coastal zone as an example of how progress in managing the impacts of unavoidable climate change might be assessed for a specific sector with its own legal frameworks, governance arrangements and stakeholders. The report then covers adaptation challenges faced, possible indicators, and examples of leading practice for businesses and communities.
