Abstract: The remote township and outstations of Maningrida, on the coast of central Arnhem Land, support both customary and commercial industries for the predominantly Indigenous residents. The coastal and estuarine location of Maningrida means it is likely to be vulnerable to sea-level rise, increased storm surge and saltwater intrusion, and more intense cyclones. Saltwater intrusion is a particular threat to local plant and animal species that underpin local enterprises. For the community, its demonstrated preparedness for and resilience to cyclone Monica is a good indication of its adaptive capacity; however there are likely to be more serious challenges in the future from threats to industry and well-being.
