AbstractAustralia is facing some degree of continuing global change (IPCC 2007) (referred to as climate change in this report, and including climate variables and atmospheric gases). The Agriculture and Food Policy Reference Group (2006) considers that without adequate preparation, climate change could have serious implications for sustainable agriculture in Australia. Changes to current practices are therefore required to accommodate climatic changes and ensure future sustainability of the industry in its present location. This challenge will require capacity building to help stakeholders interpret projections, consider impacts and risks and develop and adopt adaptation strategies to address climate change. It is also necessary to identify knowledge gaps to guide future R&D investment.
