CSIRO Land and Water overview
CSIRO Land and Water conducts research to understand natural and engineered land and water systems and to predict how they respond to change.
Water Use Efficiency
CSIRO is working to improve the water use efficiency of grain based farming systems, with research partners in the Grains Research and Development Corporation's (GRDC) water use efficiency initiative.
Reducing livestock methane emissions
CSIRO is undertaking an extensive research program to develop practical solutions for reducing methane emissions from livestock such as sheep and cattle.
Climate Impacts on Water
The Climate Impacts on Water team carries out research to predict climate variability and climate change impacts on streamflow characteristics and water availability.
The Catchment Hydrology team is researching catchment-scale and regional-scale hydrological processes in relation to changes in land cover and climate.
Facing Africa's food security challenges
Increasing the productivity of Africa’s agricultural systems is one of the most significant challenges facing global agriculture. CSIRO is working with African scientists and institutions to help African’s develop long term solutions.
