Model Climate Law Project - Discussion paper

The aim of this Discussion Paper is to highlight some of the issues we would like to see addressed by comprehensive national climate change legislation.

We ask the question: if Australia was to introduce a national Climate Change Act, what should it cover?

A comprehensive plan to address climate change requires more than just the establishment of an emissions trading scheme, and it is clear that there are a number of key elements that should form part of the legislative architecture.

This Paper by no means presents a definitive list of necessary actions, rather it identifies ideas for discussion and development.
