The island communities in the Pacifc contribute very little to global carbon emissions, yet they are among the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Dr Colin Tukuitonga, a general practitioner by training, was born and raised on Niue Island in the Pacifc. He...
The annual UN Environment Emissions Gap Report presents an assessment of current national mitigation efforts and the ambitions countries have presented in their Nationally Determined Contributions, which form the foundation of the Paris Agreement.
This report attempts to find new ways to allow Australia to effectively achieve the goal of a 26% cut in emissions, whilst also retaining a commitment to energy reliability and affordability, especially for low-income Australians.
According to this national climate policy survey report, 92% of Australian business and industry respondents believe that national climate and energy policies are insufficient and won’t drive the emissions reductions needed to meet our Paris Agreement targets.
The drivers of land-use decisions are complex, and models provide a structured methodology for investigating these. For the public and private sectors to make robust land-use decisions under uncertainty, high-quality modelling tools and data are essential.
As New Zealand joins with other countries to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, it will come under increasing pressure from changing economic opportunities, potentially disruptive new technologies, natural resource constraints, and evolving social and political drivers.
This consultation seeks views from the public and interested parties on whether New Zealand should sign up to an international treaty for the prevention of air emissions from ships.
This audit shows current policies will reduce National Electricity Market (NEM) emissions to 22% below 2005 levels in 2019-20, effectively meaning electricity sector has an emissions reduction target of only 4% to 2030.
Unprecedented levels of urbanisation coupled with revolutions in transport, energy, and data technology offer new opportunities to reshape cities. Cities of the future need to be planned strategically to support environmental and social well-being as well as economic productivity. To do so, cities must encourage...
In Australia, capital cities are increasingly stepping forward to offer leadership on greenhouse gas abatement to a degree not evident at the national level, nor in many states and territories. This paper analyses the carbon targets, strategies, outcomes, policies and measures that are being used...
This reports aims to assist the Sino-Australian bilateral relationship adapt to meet China’s new carbon emissions policies and to facilitate a smoother transition to a low carbon future.
The reduction of the energy consumption and carbon emissions in the building sector is an important target for actions to mitigate the climate changes and different actions are being carried out to promote a transition to a low carbon built environment....
Australia’s energy emissions continue to increase, breaking all-time records. Petroleum, in particular diesel consumption, is the main driver of emission increases.
This working paper explores the necessary provisions of a Contract for Difference (CFD) for a new ‘High Efficiency Low Emissions’ (HELE) coal generator producing steam at ultrasupercritical pressure and temperature.
This issue of the NEEA electricity update focuses on the network costs component of retail prices, with a look back at how and why this has increased over the past ten years.
