The Climate Change Innovation Collection is a repository of innovative approaches to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change, and has been established to feed for the Virtual Hub for Climate Change Innovation: climatechangeinnovation.org.
Meat alternatives are attracting private investment and interest from the research community as possible solutions to meet the growing global demand for proteins in a sustainable, ethical and healthy way. Investigating the opportunities and challenges associated with three meat alternatives, this report calls for clear...
Climate Action Teams (CATs) are an innovative approach under the umbrella of the Paris Agreement allowing such international cooperation while addressing concerns over environmental integrity and ambition levels. This document describes CATs.
Some Nationals MPs have expressed concern about the impact that cutting emissions to zero in net terms by 2050 would have on Australia's resources industries, particularly coal. RMIT ABC Fact Check investigates. Verdict: Mr Joyce's claim doesn't stack up.
This report outlines a vision for a transport system that is fair to all, works to improve people’s health and wellbeing, and provides a better environment for nature.
Woodside and BHP’s Scarborough to Pluto LNG project is the most polluting fossil fuel project currently proposed in Australia. This report details the impacts of the project and examines Woodside’s management of climate change risks.
The number of countries announcing pledges to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions over the coming decades continues to grow. This report assesses the policy requirements, the deployment and innovation needs, the necessary investments, the economic benefits and the wider implications for the world.
The assessment highlights the critical role that cutting methane emissions, including from the fossil fuel industry, plays in slowing the rate of global warming.
Many countries and subnational jurisdictions are considering putting a price on carbon to help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and achieve their climate commitments. The objective of this guide is to help policy-makers build the case for carbon pricing and choose an appropriate carbon pricing...
The report synthesises the observed impacts of climate change on Australia and the risk to our future of the current global trajectory of greenhouse gas emissions. It focuses on the consequences of 3°C of global warming in the absence of greater mitigation strategies for four...
This article explores the social-political determinants of climate attitudes, and how they are positioned in relation to voting behaviour, in the context of the 2019 Australian federal election.
U.S. states have always played an important role in setting the nation’s energy and climate policies. This paper discusses how key measures of emissions reductions, clean growth, and energy resilience may shape perceptions about state performance in addressing climate change imperatives.
The research outlined in this paper finds that Australia’s farmers are well placed to benefit from global market changes as countries and businesses around the world act on and adapt to climate change.
Fact Check: Anthony Albanese says emissions fell just 1 per cent under the Coalition, compared with 15 per cent under Labor.
Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese claimed that emissions have fallen by just one per cent under the Coalition Government compared with 15 per cent when Labor was in power. Verdict: Mr Albanese's claim is close to the mark.
Scott Morrison's plan for a gas-led economic recovery has brought the Coalition's climate and energy policies back into focus. But the emphasis on natural gas — a fossil fuel mostly made up of methane — has alarmed some scientists and political figures, who say such...
In June 2019, the UK government committed to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This report examines the current government’s approach to tackling, and preparing for, climate change – as well as the approaches of previous governments and other countries.
This briefing paper shows that had the Gillard Government’s carbon price remained in place, Australia’s emissions would be 25 million tonnes lower in 2020 and 72 million tonnes lower over the last five years.
This report argues that Australia’s fossil fuel exports have a massive impact on rising global emissions and it’s time to recognise and account for that impact as part of the global climate change crisis and how it’s addressed.
This analysis reveals that while the Australian Government is considering taxpayer support for a new coal power station to be built in Queensland, there are currently no coal power plants under construction anywhere else in Australia or North America, and only one plant being built...
