Appendix A public consultation

The Authority is required to conduct public consultation for all of its reviews. Throughout this review, the Authority consulted with a wide range of interested parties, including carbon farming participants, industry and government.

On 17 October 2014, the Authority released an issues paper, which can be accessed on the Authority’s website. As part of the issues paper submissions process, the Authority received 17 stakeholder submissions. Three submissions were confidential.
Table 5 lists the individuals and organisations that provided submissions. These submissions are available on the Authority’s website: http://www.climatechangeauthority.gov.au/submissions/submissions-received.

The Authority also held a stakeholder roundtable in Canberra on 25 November 2014. This roundtable tested the review's preliminary conclusions with 24 stakeholders.

In addition to specific consultation activities, the Authority conducted less formal consultation with interested parties and government agencies. The Authority held 20 one on one meetings with stakeholders over the course of the review.
