Climate Futures for Tasmania Project

Climate Change Graphic words
The Tasmanian Government, alongside the Australian Government's Commonwealth Environment Research Facilities Programme, and Hydro Tasmania, are cooperatively funding a new research collaboration which will provide likely future climate information at local scales around Tasmania. Previously, national scale projections have been relied upon which has sometimes limited their use at local levels. The Climate Futures for Tasmania Project will provide projections that can be used for local decision-making, and importantly, to involve a broad cross section of the community promoting a more holistic approach to climate change adaptations.

Understanding what the changes are likely to be is crucial in our current planning and decision-making processes. Please go to the Department of Premier and Cabinet - Impacts of Climate Change website for further information on the Climate Futures for Tasmania Project:
