Can countries halt climate change and still make a profit?

An urban environment expert at ANU has warned that city councils acting alone to address climate change, in the absence of an evidence-based systems approach, can have unintended consequences.

Can we have strong climate action and robust economic growth at the same time?

This public lecture, based on the OECD report 'Investing in Climate, Investing in Growth', will lay out the economic case for integrating climate policy into the heart of mainstream economic policy. It will focus on what governments can to do boost economic growth and enhance productivity without locking the world into a high-emissions future.

Climate Update will present an overview of how our climate is changing and how we’re responding to these changes. You'll hear from experts from Griffith University and the Australian National University, policy makers and leading commentators from across Australia.

This event is free and open to the public - registration is essential.
