A review by Prof Max Finlayson et al. Part 1 of this review synthesizes recent research on the status and climate vulnerability of freshwater and saltwater wetlands, and their contribution to addressing climate change (carbon cycle, adaptation, resilience). Part 2 explores the policy and management realm from international to national, subnational and local levels to identify strategies and policies reflecting an integrated understanding of both wetland and climate change science.
We are a multi and trans-disciplinary Research Centre at Charles Sturt University, Australia's largest regional university. In partnership with government and others, we undertake biophysical, social and economic research to address local, regional, national and global issues.
Our researchers are involved in individual, collaborative and commissioned work around Australia and the world. Research is undertaken within four thematic (not mutually exclusive) areas:
* Biodiversity Conservation
* Environmental Water
* Rural and Regional Communities
* Sustainable Development (International)
Our mission is to undertake internationally recognised integrated environmental, social and economic research for rural and regional areas.
