Climate risks and opportunities

Tasmania's climate is already changing, and the latest Australian climate change projections from the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO show how the climate is expected to change over the coming decades. The projections for Tasmania are:

  • Average temperatures will continue to rise
  • Less rainfall in winter and spring
  • More hot days and fewer frosts
  • More extreme rainfall events
  • Harsher bushfire weather, and
  • Mean sea level will continue to rise.

A changing climate will present both risks and opportunities for Tasmania. It is important that we take action to adapt and reduce our vulnerability as well as take advantage of any opportunities.

Climate research grants program

The Climate Research Grants Program provides funding for climate research projects that help us better understand Tasmania’s future climate, so we can prepare our businesses and communities. Applications closed on Friday 12 June 2020. Learn more about the grants program.
