Research priorities

Our research priorities guide the development and delivery of our research portfolio, ensuring that the Hub delivers relevant and practical research that will address the needs of our stakeholders. These priorities will be revisited regularly in consultation with the Department of the Environment, the Minister, other hubs and our stakeholders.

  • We’re improving our observations of our past and current climate so we can better understand the processes driving our climate system, and how they are changing.

  • We’re improving our understanding of how the climate system may change in the future, so we can be better prepared to address challenges and take advantage of opportunities.

  • We’re building the utility of Earth systems and climate change information so policy and decision makers have the best available tools to inform adaptation, planning and mitigation responses.
