Australia’s national climate change projections are housed on the Climate Change in Australia website.
The website was originally launched in 2016 and at the time of development was considered a state-of-the-art climate projections portal. The website is now about 5 years old and needed a refresh to make it easier to find and use the climate change projections information, data and tools you need.
Armed with insights into the needs of users gathered from a 2020 user survey, past surveys, user experience analysis and interviews with selected stakeholders, the Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub has provided an update for the Climate Change in Australia website.
The website now has a new look, better navigation menus, a search function and limited new content. New content added to the website includes information on reframing climate change projections for Australia for various global warming levels since the pre-industrial era, such as 1.5, 2 and 3 degrees Celsius. High-level statements on past and future climate changes for all states and territories, and at a national level, have also be added to the website.
So head over to the refreshed Climate Change in Australia website and see what climate change projections information, data and tools are available to help you better understand your current and future climate risks.
This website refresh was conducted under the ESCC Hub Case Study 6.6: Improving the functionality, utility and accessibility of information on the Climate Change in Australia website.
Support was provided through the Climate Resilience Enterprise Initiative.
