CASE STUDY 6.6: Improving the functionality, utility and accessibility of information on the Climate Change in Australia website
The Climate Change in Australia website was developed in 2015/16 as part of the Regional NRM Planning for Climate Change Fund. It was designed in consultation with NRM planners to address their climate change information needs. At the time of development, it was considered a state-of-the-art climate projections portal. However, over time the needs of some climate change projections users have changed and grown and new users, with information requirements that were not considered at the time of development, have emerged.
We’ve engaged with stakeholders to identify ways to improve the accessibility of information on the website, and have implemented actions to improve navigation to key content.
Improving the user experience of the Climate Change in Australia website and the functionality, utility and accessibility of information, data and tools within the website will assist in ensuring that climate change projections information is better able to be applied by target user groups to inform policy development, management planning, risk assessment and associated decision-making.
