Australia | CCA urged to consider 1.5 degree pathway in climate policy options for Australia

The Climate and Health Alliance (CAHA, the Healthy Energy Initiative’s partner in Australia) has urged the Federal Government and the Climate Change Authority to reconsider and re-evaluate its recommendations for emissions reductions, in light of the 2015 Paris Agreement. This Agreement includes a new obligation for all nations to “pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre- industrial levels”.

CAHA Member groups met with the Climate Change Authority recently to discuss the CCA Draft Report on Climate Policy Options. CAHA has compiled a submission to CCA with responses and concerns from members.
