National Environmental Science Program

The National Environmental Science Program (NESP) is the Australian Government’s long-term commitment to environment and climate research. Through an investment of $145 million from 2014–15 to 2020–21, and a further $149 million from 2020–21 to 2026–27, NESP supports decision-makers by providing them with the best available information, based on world-class science. This helps Australian decision-makers to better understand, manage and conserve Australia’s environment.

Phase 2 of NESP is delivered through four research hubs. In addition to the Climate Systems Hub, these are:

  • Resilient Landscapes Hub
  • Sustainable Communities and Waste Hub
  • Marine and Coastal Hub

More information about NESP is available from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment website.
