This briefing explores climate-induced migration and displacement, which is seen to be falling between the policy gaps. Existing international frameworks and national policies are yet to make the crucial link between climate change impact on the frequency and intensity of extreme climate events, environmental degradation...
This paper is part of a series of briefing papers that examine the climate change policies of the countries key to the Paris Agreement and its effective and ongoing implementation. It highlights the opportunities and challenges for Canada to exceed its Paris Agreement target.
On the 10th of November the Australian Government ratified the Paris Agreement to significant media coverage. At the same time the Government also ratified the Doha Amendment to the Kyoto Protocol, which states Australia’s intention to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions between...
In December last year, the world negotiated and adopted the historic Paris Agreement on climate change. For the first time, all countries – rich and poor, large and small – agreed to take universal action to limit global warming to 1.5-2°C, to achieve net zero...

Policies are 'credible if they explicitly link to shared, meaningful, climate outcomes...
This resource discusses the history of the New Zealand government policy-making process in relation to the Emissions Trading Scheme.
Emissions trading can be a powerful tool for helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An ETS transforms a regulatory limit on emissions into an emissions...
The Climate Institute's May update on the most recent developmentson new targets and other policies.

Looks at the practice by a number of farmers in the Great Southern agricultural region of Western Australia of inoculating seed with fungi spores in order to recover degraded soils.
Healthy soil is not only a fundamental necessity for increased food...
Despite the federal government pledge under the Paris Agreement, there is strong evidence that the climate change mitigation actions being taken by Australia are not sufficient to meet our fair share of global emissions reductions.
Under the Paris Agreement, almost all governments worldwide have agreed to collectively limit global warming to 'well below' 2°C above pre-industrial temperatures, and to 'pursue efforts' to limit this warming to 1.5°C. However, there has been 1°C of warming to date, and current international pledges...
