Climate Change Research Strategy

To ensure the continued growth of NSW Primary Industries, and safeguard the future of the regional communities, our $15.4 billion sector needs to be resilient and adaptable to changes in economic and environmental conditions.

Supported by an investment of $29.2 million from the NSW Climate Change Fund, the NSW Primary Industries Climate Change Research Strategy (PDF, 2266.41 KB) will invest in project and program areas that could support the primary industries sector to adapt to climate change.

The Strategy seeks to identify through research, and innovation, energy supply and demand solutions, carbon opportunities and climate resilience building programs to enable our primary industries to prepare for the challenges and opportunities climate change presents. The results of this research will be useful in informing forward work programs and policy to support the long term sustainability of primary industries for NSW.

Research Strategy Theme Areas and Projects

The Strategy is made up of seven projects across the three key theme areas to deliver benefits and opportunities to primary producers and regional communities.
