International climate change action and Australia’s future emissions pledges

International climate negotiations are intensifying towards the Paris 2015 UN climate conference that is meant to strike a post-2020 climate agreement. The UN Secretary General is hosting a leaders’ summit in September 2014, and countries have been invited to put forward their post-2020 emission reduction goals in the first quarter of 2015. This public forum will reflect on the outlook for global action, including key elements of the post-2020 agreement, what ‘success’ in Paris might look like, and implications for Australia’s emission reduction goals to 2020 and beyond.

The active pursuit of this policy agenda has implications for the strategic relationship of the world’s superpowers, and for the G20 agenda.
