About this workshop
Climate projections for impact assessment was a two-day intensive program that took participants through the process of identifying, understanding and applying climate change projections for impact assessment.
The program, developed by the Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub in conjunction with the CSIRO Climate Science Centre and the Bureau of Meteorology, consisted of eight modules:
- An overview of the Climate Change in Australia website
- Climate change science key concepts
- Understanding internal consistency and the Climate Futures Framework
- Understanding the Climate Futures matrix
- Obtaining and understanding summary data
- Accessing results for multiple variables from individual models
- Obtaining fit-for-purpose data for impact assessments
- Putting learning into practice in your own work.
Each module included discussion sessions and hands-on activities. Participants were required to complete and submit a short pre-course activity prior to the start of the workshop.
Participant numbers for each workshop were strictly limited to ensure each participant had adequate opportunity to engage with the trainer.
This program was designed for people who have had some experience working on climate change related projects and who need to assess the impacts of the changing climate on their areas of interest. Some familiarity with the concepts of climate change science was desired.
Our trainers also tailored training for groups of 5 to 20 people, on a fee-for-service basis.
No course offerings are currently scheduled; however, if there is sufficient demand workshops may be scheduled.
