The Hub delivered information, guidance and training to state government stakeholders to enable the incorporation of climate change science into management policies and activities, including modelling and assessments.
Our research and engagement activities aimed to ensure that as a result of our science:
- state governments use and incorporate relevant and credible climate change science and information in risk assessments and adaptation plans.
- state governments start to routinely factor climate change projections and associated scenarios into long-term strategic business planning.
- Western Australian Government successfully incorporates climate change projections into hydrology models used to determine state water management practices and policies, and understand the impacts of climate change on farm dam and environmental flows.
- Victorian Government understands how to use dynamically downscaled data for land-use planning in local governments.
- Tasmanian Government and Tasmanian climate-sensitive industries have a collective understanding of the risks posed by climate extremes, have assessed these risks and developed adaptation actions and/or strategies.
- the data, tools and guidance developed for identified state government stakeholders (Vic, WA, Tas, etc.) can be used by other state and local governments in the future, thereby extending the reach, benefit and value of these activities.
