This summary report outlines the main findings of the National Adaptive Capacity (NAC) assessment and makes recommendations on how adaptive capacity might be enhanced. Reliable information on expected impacts, adaptive capacity, vulnerabilities, and the costs and benefits of adaptation options is required to plan effectively for climate change. This allows the determination of how resilient society, the economy and ecosystems are to the consequences of climate change and to plan accordingly to minimise the risks.
