Australian Government, Climate Change Authority

released 19 March 2020

In this report, the Authority updates its previous policy toolkit on economy-wide opportunities to reduce emissions for Australia to meet its Paris Agreement commitments. The report presents 35 recommendations to help transition Australia to a low emissions future, building on the Government’s current policy settings to drive down emissions in the transport, industrial, electricity, agriculture and land, and waste sectors. It also extends the analysis to position Australia for the global acceleration in emissions reductions that will be necessary to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and to increase our resilience and preparedness for a changing climate.
