CRCSI and NGIS win excellence in innovation award for the Coastal Risk projects

Tags: , , , ,

The CRCSI and NGIS Australia team won one of four Excellence in Innovation Awards at the 2017 CRC Association Conference, for their collaborative work.

Held in Canberra on 24 May 2017, the CRC Association Awards for Excellence in Innovation recognise outstanding examples of the transfer of CRC research results, knowledge and technologies that have been developed for a wide range of users of research, including the community, companies and government agencies.

The award highlighted Coastal Risk Australia (CRA),a world-first website that empowers coastal communities to take action against climate change. Built with Australian expertise from the CRCSI and NGIS Australia, the high impact of CRA led to the development of Coastal Risk Vanuatu and Coastal Risk Tonga – two Pacific nations on the front line of climate change impacts. For the first time, people of Australia and the Pacific can visualise how their neighbourhoods could be vulnerable to rising sea levels.

 The Coastal Risk websites chart most of Australia’s coast, along with the populated islands of Tonga and Vanuatu. They accurately map rising sea levels under three internationally recognised scientific scenarios. The public interest has been overwhelming, with over 150,000 individuals submitting more than four million searches since the first launch in April 2016.
