Victoria’s Climate Change Future
The Victorian Government has released Victoria’s Climate Change Strategy, which establishes new interim emissions reduction targets for 2025 and 2030, and emissions reduction pledges with actions across all parts of the Victorian economy. The Strategy has state-wide implications for jobs, economic recovery and, of course, the environment.

This event is part of the Towards 2030: Climate Action for the Crucial Decade Ahead webinar series.
The series focuses on the actions needed to meet the global climate goals by 2030. At this time of turbulence the focus is necessarily on immediate COVID-19 recovery strategies, nonetheless the medium-term process of climate goal setting continues. The world’s nations will meet at the international climate negotiations in Glasgow in November 2021 to evaluate all countries’ climate commitments. It is important to analyse the actions required during this crucial decade.
