Towards a new response to climate change - perspectives from Australia

Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment public lecture

With its ratification of the Kyoto Protocol in December 2007 and commitment to introduce an emissions trading scheme - the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme - in 2010, the Australian Government has taken the opportunity to approach climate change policy from a fresh perspective. Senator Wong will outline the Government's global and domestic policy approach, with particular emphasis on the key role of market-based mechanisms.

Penny Wong was appointed Australia's Minister for Climate Change and Water in December 2007 when the Rudd Labor Government was elected to power. She is responsible for the Government's climate change and water policies, including the design and implementation of the Government's Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme. Penny Wong was elected as a Senator for South Australia in November 2001. From 2004 to November 2007 she was a member of the Shadow Ministry, responsible for portfolios including Employment and Workforce Participation, Corporate Governance and Responsibility, and Public Administration and Accountability.
