CliMate’s future remain uncertain

Australian CliMate's future availability is uncertain with no funding pending.

With > 20,000 registered users and >100,000 analyses annually, we know from a formal evaluation that it is used in a wide range of decision making and risk analysis. How’s the season? is CliMate’s most popular analysis followed by Howoften? and How’s the past?

CliMate was initiated under the Managing Climate Variability Program (MCVP), a joint initiative of R&D Corporations with a common interest in managing production in a variable climate.

CliMate's design aimed to build on the best of previous analyses and be suited to mobile devices.

CliMate has thrived for 10 years but appears it has reached the end of its life cycle. Ironic that it was born from the fact that earlier climate tools had become orphans! Maybe 10 years is the lifetime for software!
