Climate Change Authority
The Authority provides independent advice on Australia’s emissions reduction targets, and other Australian Government climate change initiatives. The Authority is established under the Climate Change Authority Act 2011.
As part of its public consultations on the Draft Report, the Authority hosted a public webinar on 12 November 2013 3-4pm (AEDT). Anthea Harris, Chief Executive Officer, presented the key findings and recommendations of the Draft Report and responded to questions raised by stakeholders.
The Climate Change Authority is reviewing Australia’s emissions reduction goals and progress toward meeting them (the “Targets and Progress Review”). This Review will recommend short, medium and long terms emissions reduction goals and assess Australia’s progress towards its medium and long term emissions reduction targets.
The Authority has released a Draft Report for public comment and welcomes submissions, which should be lodged by 29 November 2013.
The Authority is required to provide its Final Report to the Government on its Targets and Progress Review by 28 February 2014.
