Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change

Author(s): Chris Stokes


Adapting Agriculture to Climate Changeis a fundamental resource for preparing Australia's primary industries for the challenges and opportunities of climate change for primary industry professionals, land managers, policy makers, researchers and students.

This book moves beyond describing the causes and consequences of climate change to show how each of Australia's primary industries--agriculture, forestry and fisheries--can adapt and become even more efficient and productive. The core content of the book is based on a recent science review prepared for the National Climate Change Research Strategy for Primary Industries.

Feedback from the review is included in the book, plus extra content to cover climate change scenarios, socio-economic considerations and greenhouse gas emissions along with summary information and frequently asked questions. Chapters for each primary industry review the implications of climate change, assess realistic adaptation options, and highlight potential options for the longer-term. Case studies for each industry are included along with summary tables of adoption options.

* Communicates up-to-date, scientifically robust information on climate change
* Specifically for primary industries
* Provides pathways to solutions rather than just defining the problem of climate change
* Includes case studies for each industry
* Presents a framework on which policy makers can start planning and preparing for climate change
