Climate Futures

Welcome to Climate Futures at Macquarie

Climate Futures at Macquarie bridges the divide between climate and adaptation research,policy and practice needs, by serving as a hub for interactions between leading climate researchers, governmental decision-makers, non-governmental organisations, businesses and other stakeholders, including vulnerable communities.

Our aim for the Centre is to engage with government and industry partners to develop long term research projects and educational initiatives, building capacity across Macquarie University and beyond.
