Event overview

How should governments respond to the risks associated with climate change? How will industry respond to both risks and opportunities presented by policy settings?

CEDA's report The Economics of Climate Change will examine a number of the most significant economic issues for Australia and provide recommendations on mitigating risks and maximising opportunities.

At this report launch event authors and leading commentators will specifically define the inevitable consequences of climate change and advocate for how best to allocate resources to adapt to future environmental conditions.

Join CEDA for the national launch of CEDA's second report for 2014 and add your voice to a policy issue which could reverberate for decades to come.
