Shifting frontiers: mapping Africa’s agricultural land under a future climate
New maps reveal how climate change could shift agricultural and pastoral margins in Africa by 2050. The CSIRO led data-driven research aims to give farmers – and the global community – insights to safeguard food security and livelihoods into the future.
The benefits of proactively planning for infrastructure resilience
With Australians facing the prospect of ‘big wets’ and ‘long drys’, a group of researchers at CSIRO explain why we need to shift our approach in decision-making when investing in resilient infrastructure.
What will it take to bring Australia’s lost coastal ecosystems back from the brink?
Australia's coastal and marine ecosystems have suffered death from a thousand cuts. But scientists say it’s possible to bring them back from the brink – if we act now.
Experts reflect on CSIRO’s contribution to global climate science
With the leading global climate science body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, due to publish a synthesis of its sixth report in September, three CSIRO contributors to the report series reflect on CSIRO’s contribution to global climate science.
How to build resilience in the face of compounding extreme events
The risk of more frequent and extreme natural hazards is rising with climate change. When these extreme events 'collide', their impacts compound—making communities more vulnerable to crises. How can we prevent potential systemic failures caused by extreme events?
Future-proofing wheat for hotter, drier climates
CSIRO scientists have identified new genetics that enable wheat varieties to tap into moisture up to two times deeper in the soil than current varieties.
Facing the future of disaster resilience
Extreme events continue to challenge Australians under a changing climate. We explore the role of science in helping build our resilience as we prepare for future disasters and improve our response and recovery.
