The Australian Government provides national climate science information to help manage climate and disaster risks.
We continue to develop world-class climate science risk services and tools. This work helps Australians adapt to climate change and build resilience.
The Australian Climate Service
With world-leading climate science as the foundation, the Australian Government is ensuring Australians have the information they need to reduce risks and seize opportunities. The Australian Climate Service is a $210 million investment to bring together Australia’s world-leading expertise and information to help local communities build resilience to climate change. It is guided by the Government’s Royal Commission on National Natural Disaster Arrangements.
The Australian Government established the Service in 2021 as a partnership between the:
The Australian Climate Service supports the National Emergency Management Agency.
Independent Review of the Australian Climate Service
The Australian Government has appointed an independent panel to review the Australian Climate Service.
Climate Services for Agriculture program
The Climate Services for Agriculture program helps Australian agriculture plan for the impacts of future droughts and other climate risks.
Drought Resilience Self-Assessment Tool
The Drought Resilience Self-Assessment Tool (DR.SAT) is a free tool that enables farmers to assess their resilience against climate change including drought and other climate risks.
Climate Change Projections
Natural Resource Management Planning
The Impacts and Adaptation Information for Australia’s NRM Regions section of the Climate Change in Australia website provides projections to help NRM groups in each region understand and manage the impacts of climate change.
AdaptNRM (produced by CSIRO and the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility) was developed to take national-level adaptation approaches and information sources and make them accessible and relevant for regional planning.
