The talk

Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change moves beyond describing the causes and consequences of climate change to providing options for people to work towards adaptation action.

Climate change implications and adaptation options are given for the key Australian primary industries of horticulture, forestry, grains, rice, sugarcane, cotton, viticulture, broadacre grazing, intensive livestock industries, marine fisheries, and aquaculture and water resources.

Co-editor Dr Mark Howden talks about the science behind the book and discusses the process of working with the authoring committee to pull this work together.
