Knowledge to Action: co-design of climate adaptation strategies

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

Human induced climate change is already affecting NSW climate averages and extremes. More change is likely, impacting on key NSW systems such as agriculture. Through comparison with robust, measured data we will show that existing impact studies using downscaled Global Climate Model projections appear to be systematically underestimating the rate and scale of climate impacts. Our partnership including farmers, value-chain operators and Natural Resource Management groups will 1) use actual trends, impacts and responses to re-frame climate adaptation to address now not the far future, 2) demonstrate the value of a dynamic approach to climate risk management and 3) test the effectiveness of this approach with NSW decision-makers.
