This framework for a national strategy provides a roadmap to support the Commonwealth Government in taking a leadership role in protecting the health and well-being of Australian communities from climate change, and in fulfilling its international obligations under the Paris Agreement.
The opportunity is now at hand for the United States to build a new, comprehensive and ambitious national climate policy strategy for the nation to re-engage with the international community to address climate globally. This paper sets forth a set of recommended features of a...
Estimating greenhouse gas emissions from bushfires in Australia’s temperate forests: focus on 2019-20
This technical update provides information on how net greenhouse gas emissions from bushfires affecting Australia’s temperate forests are estimated and reported to meet Australia's international commitments. It focusses on the 2019-20 bushfire season in Australia.
This report highlights the actions of 20 Australian superannuation organisations, and the commitments they have made to address emissions funded through their investments.

This paper is a resource for countries that are considering, designing and communicating net-zero targets. It summarises how countries have designed net-zero targets to date, and discusses the pros and cons of different design choices.
The impact of climate change and health will eventuate over the next few decades and it is critical that the right people are brought together to plan and address it. This report outlines some options for policy-makers.
Carbon sequestration is the general term used for the capture and long-term storage of carbon dioxide. This paper argues that a varied and tailored approach is likely to produce the most productive and the most resilient overall solution.
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.
If the world is to avoid the worst effects of dangerous climate change, we must all take urgent action to reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Australia has signed up to three separate sets of targets for reducing its emissions. This explainer takes an independent...
