About the document
Australia is already experiencing the impacts of a changing climate, particularly changes associated with increases in temperature, the frequency and intensity of extreme events, changing fire weather and shifting rainfall patterns.
Climate Compass is a framework designed to help Australian public servants manage the risks from the changing climate to policies, programs and asset management. It includes step by step instructions, guidance and information to develop an understanding of climate change risks.
Climate Compass builds on the best climate change adaptation research and science over the past decade. Climate Compass reflects the current leading practice in guidance for climate risk management and planning for long-term, uncertain, pervasive change.
Climate Compass was developed for the Australian Government Disaster and Climate Resilience Reference Group.
