Planning for sea level rise
Government, industry and the community need to work together to consider how best to plan for rising sea levels that will affect coastal communities, industries and ecosystems.
Examining the gap between science and policy
This 47-minute video captures a presentation by CSIRO's Dr Rohan Nelson to the Western Australian Department of Food and Agriculture exploring the way science informs policy for adapting to climate change.
Our climate is changing
In the past century, the global average surface temperature has risen by 0.74 ºC. The observed increase in average temperatures is widespread around the globe, with rising trends recorded on all continents and in the oceans.

CSIRO’s Climate Impacts Group has developed region-by-region climate change projections for Australia.
Climate change will continue worldwide
Greenhouse gas emissions at or above present rates will cause further warming and induce many changes in the global climate system during the 21st century. It is very likely that these changes will be larger than those already seen in the past century.
