Brief description The project meets the pressing need for a national response to climate change. The National Climate Change Adaptation Framework identifies a number of cultural changes needed within the next five years to adapt to existing climate change. Profound cultural transformations are also urgently needed to mitigate future change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The true national benefit of this work should be assessed in terms of the costs of not funding it. Australia's capacity to adapt will only ever be partial without the new and fundamental insights provided by cultural geographic research.
