Climate change and primary industries

Climate change and primary industries

A changing climate will provide significant challenges for Australia’s primary industries – risks and opportunities that must be addressed by efficient and effective research, development and extension (RDE).

Climate change is both a complex policy and RDE issue. There is a need for an integrated approach between policy research and biophysical research, and adaptation and mitigation RDE.
