ACLF Big Picture Series - Australia, climate change & the pandemic by Experience ANU published on 2020-06-19T06:06:21Z With governments around the world still deep in the struggle against COVID 19, there has been little time for issues that dominated policy debates before the pandemic. But is COVID-19 an opportunity to refocus attention on climate change, another grave global threat to humankind? What does the climate change policy discussion in Australia look like in a COVID-19 world? Is an investment-led "green recovery", especially in renewable energy, a way of spending Australia out of recession? Or will the economic shock from the pandemic stall much-needed investment in decarbonization? Is the pandemic also an opportunity to "build back better" to increase Australia's resilience to climate effects? Hear our panel of policy makers and business leaders discuss the way forward for Australia on climate action in a COVID-19 world.
