Case studies

This project assessed the impacts of climate change on coastal communities using three case studies. We gathered general demographic and marine sector information and identified specific climate change impacts occurring in the area and their effects on marine industries and the broader community. The communities assessed were:

  • St Helens, Tasmania (population approx. 3000)
  • Bowen, Queensland (population approx. 10000)
  • Geraldton, Western Australia (population approx. 30 000)
