Summary:
It is evident that demands for knowledge on climate change have reached an all-time high, due to massive interest by governments, the public, and the private sector. Decision-making by governments has begun to address key challenges of impacts and adaptation to climate change, which has created an imperative for a much deeper foundation in new types of biophysical science information.

Abstract:

It is evident that demands for knowledge on climate change have reached an all-time high, due to massive interest by governments, the public, and the private sector. Decision-making by governments has begun to address key challenges of impacts and adaptation to climate change, which has created an imperative for a much deeper foundation in new types of biophysical science information. For example, improved understanding of the likelihood of changes not just in average climate but also in its extremes is urgently needed, including present and future changes in drought intensity and duration, as well as a deeper assessment of linkages to streamflow and soil moisture. To meet this new challenge, nothing less than a fully national effort is required. The following elements are essential for a strengthened and more effective national approach, building on the established role and mode of working of the Australian Climate Change Science Programme.
