Australiawill have a national electionwithin the next six months which provides an opportunity to reset emissions reduction law to drive a more ambitious domestic agenda to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Stronger domestic action is needed for Australia to be on track to meet its nationally determine contribution(NDC)underthe 2015ParisAgreement. It istherefore timely to reflect on past initiatives and consider future possibilities for Australian climate change law, to illustrate some of the challenges of developed country legislative approaches on emissions reduction.
