A. Climate Change in Australia (or CCIA) is a comprehensive website and suite of reports providing information about climate change projections for Australia. This body of work updates the previous CCIA research published in 2007. See here for more information.
A. Extensive regional analysis has been conducted to investigate how climate change affects different regions of Australia (called 'clusters'). On this site you can find Cluster Brochures and Reports that provide detail of regional climate change projections. You can also view maps of regional projections using the Map Explorer tool or scan key messages using the Regional Climate Change Explorer .
A. This scientific assessment and new research has been funded by the Australian Government Department of the Environment, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. The work has benefited from a high degree of cooperation between these agencies and the project stakeholders.
This website was originally developed (during 2013-2016) as part of this work. Subsequent funding for maintenance and minor updates was provided by CSIRO.
The website was given an overall update in 2020/21, going live in March 2021. The update was supported through the Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub of the Australian Government’s National Environmental Science Program, with assistance from the Climate Resilience Enterprise initiative.
