Australia’s climate is changing and will continue to change in the future. Climate science and related disciplines help identify risks and opportunities from these changes that enable informed decision-making.

The Department of the Environment and Energy developed the report for the National Climate Science Advisory Committee. The report presents the committee’s advice to the Australian Government on developing a strategy for climate science.

The report highlights 6 key components to inform decision making:

  • climate observations, data, analysis and infrastructure
  • climate process studies
  • climate modelling and projections
  • climate risk, adaption and services
  • international engagement and dependencies
  • research coordination and funding

It also identifies strategic actions to enhance, coordinate and deliver climate science for Australia’s benefit.
