About NCCARF: The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) is an initiative of the Australian Federal Government that works to support decision makers throughout Australia as they prepare for and manage the risks of climate change and sea-level rise. NCCARF is based at Griffith University and is in its second phase of development. NCCARF has established new adaptation networks under a three year program (2014-17) to continue their national focus across Australia to build resilience to climate change in government, NGOs and the private sector.
