Climate change research website

Primary producers can find out more about climate change from a new website developed by the NSW Department of Primary Industries.

The website provides information on the causes of climate change, key issues for primary industries and the projected impacts on primary industries in NSW. An overview of climate change research projects being undertaken by NSW DPI is also outlined.

The website address is http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/research/topics/climate-change

For the definitive overview of the global situation, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report, just released, can be downloaded at http://www.ipcc.ch

The Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO have also jointly released regional climate change projections. Log onto to http://www.climatechangeinaustralia.gov.au to see how your region will be affected.
