The climate of New South Wales is changing. Average temperatures in New South Wales have been steadily rising since the 1960s. The period from 2000-2009 was the state's hottest decade on record. Climate change is not just about the environment. It is a cross-cutting issue which will increasingly affect all parts of the State. OEH is developing information and tools to assist government, businesses and communities build resilience to future extreme events and hazards by helping them understand and minimise the impacts of climate change. OEH is also promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy alternatives.
