Climate Change

Climate Change logo

Climate change is already upon us and will continue to affect our state and our community in a number of different ways.

The CSIRO predicts the following weather patterns for South Australia for 2030 to 2070:

  • higher temperatures, including more extreme hot days (especially during spring and summer)
  • decreased rainfall in agricultural regions (especially in winter and spring)
  • greater frequency and severity of drought
  • decreased flows in water supply catchments including the Murray Darling Basin
  • increased flood risk (despite drier average conditions)
  • increased incidence or severity of bushfires
  • coastal hazards such as erosion and flooding related to sea level rise combined with storms.
