dc.description.abstractThis paper aims to contribute to informing the management of regional landscapes to enhance ecosystems services to support climate change adaptation. The paper draws lessons from two extreme rainfall events that caused widespread damage to the State of Queensland in Australia and the State of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in early 2011. It outlines the major impacts on social-ecological systems in the two most affected regions in both countries: the Lockyer Valley in Australia and the Região Serrana of Rio de Janeiro in the Southeast of Brazil. While intense rainfall events are already common during the summer season in both regions and likely to become more frequent and intense due to climate change, policies supporting social-ecological systems protection, recovery and rehabilitation are relatively rare and lack long-term, strategic focus. The paper concludes by identifying key lessons for regional landscapes management to increase adaptive capacity to future climate change impacts.
