"Climatic trends, extreme conditions and sea level rise are already hitting
many of Australia’s ecosystems, industries and cities hard.

As climate change intensifies, we are now seeing cascading and compounding
impacts and risks, including where extreme events coincide. These are placing
even greater pressure on our ability to respond.

While the work of adaptation has begun, we have found the progress is uneven
and insufficient, given the risks we face.

These findings are from our work as co-authors of the new Australia and New
Zealand chapter in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 6th Assessment
Report on Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation, released today."
