Updated climate change information for Australia is now available.

Information about observed and projected climate change found on this site is the most comprehensive ever released for Australia, and has been prepared with an emphasis on informing impact assessment and planning in the natural resource management sector. Material has been drawn from observations and from simulations based on up to 40 global climate models and four scenarios of greenhouse gas and aerosol emissions during the 21st century.

This website provides access to a suite of brochures and reports, as well as summary statements about regional projections.

A suite of additional products, including interactive tools and data associated with the projections, is being developed, with a focus on improving accessibility and uptake of information. These will be released in March 2015.

The research was funded by the Department of the Environment through the NRM Planning for Climate Change Fund with co-funding from CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology.
