The Premier’s Science Research Fund – Climate Change, Communitues and Environment research project was officially launched on the 22nd of October. This project brings together a group of researchers to plan for adaptation to climate change in regional South Australia. We will identify those land use practices and conservation areas that are most at risk from adverse effets of climage change and identify adaptation strategies and policy options to supposrt planning and implementation by regional natural resource management agencies. In so doing we will identify the managment investments that get the best improvement in natural resource condition while looking after jobs and sevices for the regional community. Professor Wayne Meyer, director of the Landscape Futures Program along with Dr Ian Chessell, the Chief Scientist for South Australia, Bill Paterson from the Murray-Darling Basin NRM Board and Brian Foster from the Eyre Peninsula NRM Board were the speakers for this launch.
