Abstract

[Overview]: Australia had well established capability in the field of climate forecasting – seasonal climate forecasting - and this capability extended into world-leading applications systems for farming and agriculture. However, this capability appears to have only been effective in regions where 'local champions', connected to regional research centres, provided the detailed analyses required to make climate forecasting a successful component of risk management, especially in agriculture, for their region. Delivery of climate forecast ‘products’ from national centres (federal government agencies) has been less effective.
