Climate change presents significant challenges for South Australia. Over the last century, temperatures in South Australia have increased by nearly one degree Celsius. Sea levels are also rising and projections indicate warmer and drier conditions across much of the state with an increased risk of severe weather events including storms, floods, heatwaves, droughts and bushfires. These changes will affect our health and wellbeing along with coastal buildings and roads and key industries and resources that underpin the state's economy.
With these report cards we outline the condition of our natural resources and we also outline our management and community stewardship capacities.
