The earth’s climate is warming. New temperature records are being set around the world on a regular basis. Severe weather events are becoming more regular and affecting more people. In Australia, droughts are becoming longer and more severe and winter rainfall in southern Australia is decreasing.

How can we adapt to live in this warmer world? What can we do to prepare ourselves for these changes? What impacts are these changes going to have on a local, regional and global scale?

Explore many of these aspects of climate change through lectures from some of the experts in their fields both from ANU and other agencies.
