Climate Change Authority forms new strategic partnership with the Bureau of Meteorology

The Climate Change Authority and the Bureau of Meteorology have today entered into a Strategic Relationship Agreement to enhance and streamline the climate advice provided to Government.

Chief Executive of the Climate Change Authority Brad Archer welcomed the formalisation of the two organisations existing close working relationship.

“The data, analysis and advice we’ve received from the Bureau of Meteorology has helped us produce well-informed advice to Government. The ability to now seamlessly access the Bureau’s suite of data and insights will help us further as we produce the rigorous and independent advice required to help the Government ensure we reach net zero,” Mr Archer said.

The Bureau is Australia's national weather, climate and water agency. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of the most fundamental and widely used services of government. 

The Bureau of Meteorology, Geoscience Australia, CSIRO and Australian Bureau of Statistics have formed a partnership, the new Australian Climate Service, to bring the Commonwealth’s extensive climate and natural hazard information into a single national view.

The Climate Change Authority is Australia’s independent agency responsible for providing rigorous, independent and balanced advice to the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction and the Australian Parliament, to formulate climate policy and improve the quality of life for all Australians.
