About Climate Change | Climate Impacts


Climate change is having, and will have, a range of physical and environmental impacts (for example, sea-level rise, rising temperatures and changing pest profiles). Adaptation is about trying to reduce or overcome the way these impacts affect our human, economic and built systems.

Good adaptation planning is based on up-to-date information about climate impacts in your local area. This section highlights our/current research into climate impacts, and gives you some brief information about individual impacts.

These resources can help you explore data and analysis about a range of climate impacts. You can also access some localised or case study information. As well, you can learn how to access or ask for data that's relevant to your specific location.

We have enough information about climate impacts to begin adaptation planning now.
