The article discusses the significance of climate change planning, as scientists concerted the need for preparations to combat sea-level rise along coastal areas. According to sources, they are particularly calling for the development of constructive national and international partnerships to underpin efforts to manage climate change. In Australia, John Church, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization oceanographer and leading sea-level rise scientist with Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, states that planning for a changing climate is a mainstream issue in need of informed consideration. Moreover, Church says Australians are beginning to recognize that climate science is presenting them with outcomes and suggesting options for adaptation.
