Climate Science Initiative

Producing and communicating local climate information to help Western Australians adapt to our changing climate.
Last updated:

Understanding our variable and changing climate is critical to developing and implementing solutions for a resilient, low-carbon Western Australia.

The Climate Science Initiative will produce the most detailed and comprehensive Western Australian climate change projections to date, extending 75 years into the future.

Translating this science into local insights will be critical to helping non-specialists understand and apply the information. Communities, businesses, and all levels of government will then be better placed to respond to the impacts of climate change.

This includes helping government better protect the state’s unique biodiversity, plan for more intense climate extremes like tropical storms, floods, and bushfires, and support major investment decisions in areas such as energy infrastructure, planning and regional development.
