Climate variability

Dealing with the uncertainty of short-term climate variability and long-term climate change is already presenting significant challenges for landholders, townspeople, emergency services and the environment across NSW.

The changing climate is one of the biggest challenges confronting the sustainability of production and the natural resource base.

Local Land Services will work with landholders to address some key issues in climate change including:

  • working to improve understanding climate variability and climate change
  • lessen the effects of climate change
  • improve our capacity to adapt where necessary.
