” Current Australian research has found that unmitigated climate change will lead to severe humanitarian crises, forced migration, political instability and conflict. The Asia-Pacific region, including Australia, is considered one of the worst affected areas. To mitigate the impact of climate change, Australia can show the way in moving from a carbon intensive economy to a ‘zero carbon economy’.
The Zero Carbon Australia Plan by Beyond Zero Emissions and research partner organisations is a series of publications which show how Australia can rapidly decarbonise.”
