ONLINE EVENT: Find out how South Australia is using climate science to prepare for the effects of climate change.
No matter what you do, it’s always good to be prepared. And preparing for the impacts of climate change is no exception.
Climate change could affect what type of crops are grown and how we grow them. It could mean changing how we build our infrastructure and homes to withstand new climate conditions.
It may spur new industries and technology, as well as adapting and evolving how we do things now.
So what can we do to be more prepared?
It begins with understanding the science
Climate science shows us how the climate is changing, as well as how these changes will impact people’s everyday lives.
Climate scientists share this knowledge so we can build our understanding and find practical solutions to adapt to the impacts of climate change.
Adapting to the changing climate will help to ensure South Australia continues to thrive and prosper in the future.
It will help our environment, businesses and communities have the resilience to cope with the changes.
