Queensland’s climate is already changing and is likely to change further in the future, posing significant risks for the State and some of its most important industries. The next chapter of the climate story is about how Queenslanders, and Australians, can find solutions that minimise the risks of climate change while providing extra benefits for our health, community, economy and environment.
