Summary The conference was sponsored by Bureau of Resource Sciences, Australian Academy of Science, University of New South Wales, Bureau of Meteorology, Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, National Farmers' Federation, Land and Water Resources Research and Development Corporation. It highlighted the close relationship between existing science programs and government needs and priorities in managing the effects of climate variability on agriculture and natural resources. The themes were the needs and objectives of government to which research can contribute; the role of modelling in the research of complex systems; climate processes, predictions and applications; weather and land surface processes, predictions and applications; and climatic variability and its implications
