Climate change and primary industries

A changing climate will provide significant challenges for Australia’s primary industries – risks and opportunities that must be addressed by efficient and effective research, development and extension (RDE).

Climate change is both a complex policy and RDE issue. There is a need for an integrated approach between policy research and biophysical research, and adaptation and mitigation RDE.  

By joining forces as PICCC, the University of Melbourne and Agriculture Victoria offer a significant new strength in research, development and education related to climate change and the primary industries. To date, the partnership has successfully brokered over 30 large collaborative projects with a total value of more than $68 million.
