Contents >> Socio-economic Objective >> DIVISION 96 ENVIRONMENT >> GROUP 9603 CLIMATE AND CLIMATE CHANGE

This group covers R&D directed towards climate and climate change. For the purpose of the classification, climate refers to the long term average condition of the weather in a given area.
It includes:

  • climate and climate patterns;
  • strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change, including greenhouse gas sequestration;
  • social impacts of climate change and climate change mitigation strategies;
  • adaptation of ecosystems to climatic changes; and
  • effects of climate change at global and at regional levels in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific region.
This group has twelve objectives:
    960301 Climate Change Adaptation Measures
    960302 Climate Change Mitigation Strategies
    960303 Climate Change Models
    960304 Climate Variability (excl. Social Impacts)
    960305 Ecosystem Adaptation to Climate Change
    960306 Effects of Climate Change and Variability on Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic Environments (excl. Social Impacts)
    960307 Effects of Climate Change and Variability on Australia (excl. Social Impacts)
    960308 Effects of Climate Change and Variability on New Zealand (excl. Social Impacts)
    960309 Effects of Climate Change and Variability on the South Pacific (excl. Australia and New Zealand) (excl. Social Impacts)
    960310 Global Effects of Climate Change and Variability (excl. Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and the South Pacific) (excl. Social Impacts)
    960311 Social Impacts of Climate Change and Variability
    960399 Climate and Climate Change not elsewhere classified

    a) Atmosphere and weather, including atmospheric composition, are included in Group 9602 Atmosphere and Weather.
    b) Non-climate related oceanic processes are included in Group 9699 Other Environment.
