Climate change adaptation: Briefing note 6 – Elected representatives

Climate change has the potential to impact many aspects of life and business in Australia. The severity and rate of climate change will depend on efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This factsheet lists some of the risks this sector will be faced with, what climate change may mean for those working in this sector, and how adaptation might help shape their response to these challenges.
