C2IM is a University
Research Centre at the The University of Newcastle
established in April 2007. It is a strategic initiative
building on the environmental research strengths of two
existing research groups; The Environmental Engineering
Research Group in the Faculty of Engineering and the
Environmental and Climate Change Research Group in
the Faculty of Science.
Water availability in
Australia controls national well-being and environmental
health. The Centre for Climate Impact Management (C2IM)
addresses the key issues of natural climate variability
and climate change, and their impacts on water
availability. This includes understanding the
- magnitude of predicted climate change relative to
- environmental impact of climate change and
- optimal management of our water resources.
This work will underpin a
new generation of management and policy tools that
explicitly assess, in a multi-criterion setting, the
security of our urban and rural water supply systems.
