Abstract: In 2012, the Australian Government established the regional Natural Resource Management Planning for Climate Change Fund, with the aim of improving the capacity of regional natural resource management (NRM) organisations to plan for climate change. The fund included regional-level planning support (Stream 1) as well as a series of research projects (Stream 2) to provide regional-level climate change information and projections. Stream 2 has been delivered via the National Projections Project and eight regional cluster projects. The Rangelands Cluster is the largest of the clusters and includes seven NRM regions across five jurisdictions. The Rangelands Cluster Project was a collaboration between the Rangelands NRM Alliance, CSIRO, University of Canberra and Ninti One. The Rangelands NRM Alliance represents seven NRM regions: Rangelands WA, Territory NRM, Alinytjara Wilurara NRM (SA), SA Arid Lands NRM, Desert Channels Qld, South West NRM (Qld) and Western Local Lands Services. To agree on priorities for information to support NRM planning across the rangelands, a range of consultation and engagement methods were used, including face-to-face meetings, workshops, surveys and establishment of a reference group and scientific advisory panel. Through these processes, a series of priorities were identified. Relevant information was gathered, collated and interpreted to produce a report on each topic. All the reports have also been compiled and form chapters in this document. The key points from each report are included in this Executive Summary. The URLs for the full reports are included under each section.
