The Australian Government’s climate change position paper: Adapting to Climate Change in Australia sets out the vision for adapting to the impacts of climate change.
To realise this vision, the government plays a key role in the provision of information and the funding of public good research.
In relation to climate change adaptation:
- The Carbon Farming Futures Program’s outcomes will allow Australian land managers to make informed business decisions in relation to climate change and to take advantage of new business opportunities through carbon markets. This will build the resilience of land sector businesses while delivering climate change adaptation results.
- The National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) is part of other national research initiatives that aim to generate the information needed by decision makers to effectively manage the risks of climate change impacts.
- The department administered the four year initiative Australia’s Farming Future. The initiative delivered a range of activities to help primary producers adapt and respond to climate change.
- Australia’s Farming Future’s Climate Change Research Program invested $11.5 million to the Adaptation Research Program. In addition, the Climate Change Research Program’s demonstration projects have tested adaptation strategies through modelling and on-farm demonstration activities.
