The Centre for Water, Climate and Land (CWCL) focuses on understanding and dealing with the impacts of climate variability and change in the Asia-Pacific region. Of particular interest are hydrological extremes and how these may change in the future. Other areas of expertise include characterising impacts of climate variability and change, seasonal/interannual hydroclimate forecasting, extreme event (e.g. flood, drought, bushfire etc.) risk analysis, hydrological modelling, stochastic modelling, water resources management and climate-smart agriculture.
CWCL has been involved in a wide range of consulting projects where insights into the impacts of climate variability and change are used to enable stakeholders from a range of public and private sector organisations to better assess their climate related risk and to develop more informed climate adaptation and mitigation strategies.
In addition to research, the CWCL also has a focus on education and capacity building in the fields of water, climate and land/soil through professional development, undergraduate training and PhD/Masters research supervision.
