This project was commissioned and funded entirely by the Safer Together Program.

This research will consider the impacts of climate change on fire weather in Victoria, including how variables such as rainfall, temperature, wind and relative humidity might change in the future. The research team will work to strengthen the knowledge and data available in Victoria, informing decision making and climate change models.

A key outcome of this research will be to conduct an exploration of fire weather under different climate change scenarios and to provide recommendations on the most appropriate climate models and statistical methods to support the analysis of the impacts of climate change on fire weather and bushfire risk assessments.
