Impacts
of climate change

Climate change will affect the natural, social and economic welfare of NSW. By better understanding the impacts of climate change on our environment, communities and lifestyles, we can prepare and adapt for the future. Changes in some types of natural hazards have already been observed. For example, there have been increases in the frequency and intensity of heat waves and in heavy precipitation.

New research on climate change impacts based on the NARCliM projections is helping us to understand how our biophysical systems might change in the future. Access the information through the links below.
