Farm Table says:

Climate risk management involves being proactive in tackling the risks that Australia's highly variable climate can raise, rather than simply taking what comes - be prepared.

This resource produced by the Bureau of Meteorology focuses on risks associated with climate and using climate information in agricultural risk management processes.

This web page introduces risk management concepts and climate risk factors.

The key linked sections address risk management associated with:

  • El Niño and La Niña
  • rainfall
  • temperature risks

In conclusion, the impacts of climate change on agriculture are regionally dependent and not straightforward. CSIRO and other agencies have ongoing research programmes to improve and refine the assessment of likely impacts around Australia.
