Climate change

Indigenous rangers throughout our project area are seeing extremes in weather patterns and are witnessing the impact of these conditions. Of particular interest to the project, is the potential role of carbon farming for remote desert communities and related issues of climate change and adaptation.

It is predicted that:

A failure to manage the impact of climate change on remote communities will undermine their sustainability and these important benefits.

Indigenous land management organisations and Indigenous rangers can, if resourced adequately, provide an important role in the keeping remote communities safe and healthy.  These include:

The 10DP is working with our project partners to develop a range of information products incorporating local knowledge and science to create awareness of climate change and its impact on the deserts and how rangers can carry out work to adapt and mitigate the impacts.
