Appendix A Public consultation
The Authority is required to conduct public consultation for all its reviews. Prior to release of this report, the Authority engaged with climate scientists, industry, non-government organisations and the general public.
In March 2013, the Authority held a Global Emissions Budgets Roundtable. A summary of the roundtable, as well as presentations made by the experts who attended, is available on the Authority’s website.
The Authority released an Issues Paper on 23 April 2013, which can be accessed on the Authority’s website. The Authority gave presentations on the Issues Paper at 19 forums around Australia hosted by industry, environment and community organisations.
The Authority also called for public submissions to the Issues Paper. Around 70 submissions were received from a wide range of stakeholders. Submissions are published on the Authority’s website.
