Abstract: Increasing concentrations of 'greenhouse' gases in the atmosphere have the potential to cause relatively rapid changes in regional climates. However, the timing, magnitude and direction of these changes is unknown. Medium to long term management of our resources requires that we make decisions now depend on these unknown climatic conditions. Strategies need to be developed that result in management decisions that do not have serious negative consequences if the predictions of climatic change are incorrect. Some aspects of this problem are easier to deal with than others. An example of a strategy for response to potential climate change is presented. Development, acceptance and implementation of a response requires an attitude that facilitates a pro-active and cooperative action.
