Adapting to climate change


Tasmania’s climate is projected to change in the future. These changes will result from greenhouse gas emissions that have already been emitted into the atmosphere and will continue to be emitted in coming years.

In the future Tasmanians will need to adapt to these changes; taking advantage of new opportunities and reducing vulnerability to detrimental climate change impacts.
