Publications

A range of publications are available for download

The VCP19 publications present a comprehensive assessment of Victoria's changing climate. For the purposes of the analysis of past and future climate, Victoria was divided into ten regions (see VCP19 Getting Started ).

The detailed Technical Report (see below) describes past and future climate change for Victoria and is aimed at a technical audience.

Easy to read summaries of projected climate changes are provided in separate Regional Reports - one for each of the ten Regions.

A range of Fact Sheets have also been developed to address particular topics of relevance to Victoria's changing climate and the VCP19 climate projections.

Please note: A small number of typographical errors were found in the Technical Report and Regional Reports after they were published. These are described in the Technical Report Erratum and Regional Reports Erratum that can be downloaded below. The versions of the Technical Report (whole report and individual chapters) and Regional Reports available for download below are the corrected versions.
