NT Climate Change Response

Consultation has concluded

The Northern Territory Climate Change Response provides a long-term vision of where we need to go and how we can harness the opportunities. A climate change response is a responsible economic strategy. It recognises that as Australia and the world transition to a low-carbon economy and respond to climate risk, those that don’t will be left behind.

Our Climate Change Response builds on the Climate Change Discussion Paper (Mitigation and Adaptation Opportunities in the Northern Territory) and outlines our approach to addressing climate risk and harnessing new opportunities to:

Continue to facilitate the growth of renewables to diversify and strengthen the Territory economy and enable new export industries;

Build on existing initiatives across the Northern Territory to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors, in line with a long-term aspirational target of net zero emissions by 2050; and

Proactively respond to the impacts of climate change.

It recognises that all sectors in the Northern Territory need to be engaged to realise the benefits and that the transition to a low-carbon economy needs to be carefully managed to ensure ongoing economic investment in the Northern Territory.

This consultation closes On October 31 2019.
