This project was part of a co-ordinated and collaborative program to support producer adaptation to climate change in southern Australia.

The program included

• use of modelling to identify adaptation options within a changing and more variable climate, guided by extensive industry consultation;

• distributed modelling capacity, developed across organisations, that is capable of answering industry questions;

• leading to the communication of improved adaptation to the immediate and long-term impacts of climate change.
