Climate Change and Agriculture in North West Tasmania

Agriculture in the Cradle Coast NRM region is a significant contributor to Tasmanian agricultural production.  With climate change there are some agricultural activities (AGA) that will benefit and others that may be impacted.

As part of NRM planning for climate change, Cradle Coast NRM has completed a study of these climate change impacts, including the capacity for adaptation for different agricultural sectors and possible strategies for adaptation.  This project has been funded by the Australian Government.  You can read about our project here, watch the associated videos, or see the story in our GIS Library

Sixteen fact sheets have been developed by AK Consultants based on literature reviews and industry expertise.  The fact sheets are designed to be quick reference guides which provide practical adaptation strategies for farmers.  A single fact sheet is available for each major agricultural activity (AGA) in the Cradle Coast region.  The vulnerability rating (low to high) for each AGA is shown below each fact sheet (coming soon):
