Abstract/Summary This report is a major output of a research project entitled 'Implementing tools to increase adaptive capacity in the community and natural resource management sectors'; funded by the Victorian Government through the Victorian Centre for Climate Change Adaptation Research (VCCCAR). The project consists of several phases of desktop, empirical and action research. The main goal of the research phase leading to this report was a better understanding of the climate change adaptation planning capabilities and needs of three types of service providers funded by the Victorian Government: Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs); Community Service Organisations (CSOs); and Primary Care Partnerships (PCPs). 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 on 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.
