Climate variability is a significant source of risk for farming businesses. Climate risk management involves assessing the impact of climate variability, applying structural change and making both strategic and tactical decisions to minimise the risk. This management is enhanced by improving the understanding of climatology and the potential application of seasonal climate forecasts to agriculture and natural resources. We argue that the extension of such climatological information plays a primary role in managing climate risk and can be delivered through workshops combined with user-friendly software.
