to climate change
Climate change poses grave risks to the health and wellbeing of Australians. How governments respond to climate change can make a difference not only to the environment but also to quality of life, especially for people experiencing disadvantage.
We're working to ensure equitable responses to climate change, including ambitious and fair emissions reduction targets and policies, ensuring all Australians can adapt to unavoidable impacts of climate change, and enabling people to be part of solutions to climate change.

Modelling shows that we can tackle energy affordability and reduce carbon emissions at the same time, but Energy Intensive Trade Exposed Industries (EITEs) must be included.
Our other work includes:
- responding to Victoria’s Climate Change Act Review
- exploring the impact of disadvantage on community participation in bushfire preparedness and response.
