Ten steps to increasing bushfire resilience
The Black Summer took a heavy toll on Queensland, but will a new bushfire resilience guide for homeowners get the community talking about living with the bush beyond the back fence?
Precision crop stubble grazing to benefit farmers in vulnerable times
The nutritional value of crop stubble for grazing sheep has been reassessed for the first time in 25 years. A new tool will also help farmers review their practices to get the most benefit.
Geoengineering the ocean could help slow climate change
A new project led out of Germany is investigating how novel ocean negative emission technologies (NETs) might work to slow down the rate of climate change.
Soils ain’t soils – carbon farming offers fertile future
Increasing the amount of carbon stored in agricultural soils can help mitigate rising greenhouse gas emissions and sustain agricultural productivity. Carbon farming is a key plank of Australia’s climate mitigation efforts, and CSIRO scientists are looking for new and innovative approaches to help realise the benefits for all.
CSIRO climate scientists present to Royal Commission
Six key messages about climate change and natural disasters from CSIRO climate scientists, presented to the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements.
Time to beef up agrifood supply chains
COVID-19 has exposed vulnerabilities in our global food systems, which have become designed around “just-in-time” principles to maximise efficiency. As we start to look at what life will be like after this pandemic, can we reconfigure our supply chains around resilience and sustainability to guard against the impact of future shocks?
Deconstructing disasters: Taking stock on where we are now, and dreaming our future
Australia and the world are facing multiple, successive, widespread disruptions which can lead to catastrophic disaster. A ‘Deconstructing Disasters’ approach can help us to build more resilience in our systems.
