Planning for Climate Change Project

This project has provided updated climate change information to assist the Central Tablelands Local Land Services and its stakeholders in making effective decisions and investments to manage the risk and opportunities associated with climate change in the local region.

The project aimed to ensure the region has the appropriate tools to build resilience in its landscape and communities. The project will deliver outcomes that help inform land managers and Natural Resource Management bodies about the design of projects to mitigate and adapt under a changing climate.

Through this project a Future Climate Impacts review has been delivered in partnership with Riverina Local Land Services. The review presents key information on climate projections along with climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation options for grazing, broadacre, intensive livestock, horticulture and non-agriculture use. The document provides recommendations for Local Land Services on strategic interventions under a broad policy framework. Download the Future Climate Impacts review (PDF 5.59MB, 212 pages)

Research into biophysical and economic impact and adaptation options in a changing climate for low rainfall mixed farms in southern NSW has also been funded by the Planning for Climate change project. Part one of the report covers baseline and projected biophysical and economic performance of three mixed farms in the wider region while part two evaluates three adaptive management strategies on the three mixed farms.

The Planning for Climate Change project commenced in 2013 and was completed in June 2016. The project was funded by the Federal 'Clean Energy Future' Programme ($1.7 billion). For more information about the project contact Clare Kerr
