National climate science capability

The underpinning science capability within the ACCSP allowed it to build strong and complementary connections with many other Australian research programmes.

For example, the ACCSP worked with the Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science in developing Australia’s climate modelling capability in support of research and climate and weather simulation across all timescales, and with the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre in delivering Antarctic and Southern Ocean science.

The science delivered through the ACCSP also underpinned many programmes examining the likely effects of climate change on our environment, our economy and our society, as well as informing adaptation initiatives.

Regional programmes

The ACCSP paved the way for a host of regional programmes that have increased our understanding of climate change, including:
