NCCARF’s evidence-based Policy Guidance Briefs address key challenges to effectively adapting Australia to a variable and changing climate, providing high-level policy advice designed for use by policy makers at Commonwealth and State level.

This Policy Guidance Brief deals with adapting Australia’s agriculture to climate change, especially broadacre farming, and is based mainly, but not exclusively, on experiences in southern South Australia.

The policy guidance in this brief was developed based on a workshop held in Adelaide, South Australia, and attended by farmers and industry groups from across Australia, representatives from local, state and federal government, a researcher from the University of Adelaide, a private consultant and NCCARF staff.
