On Friday 8th December the Australian Government gave its National Statement to COP28.
The statement places on record and shares our achievements and the actions we are taking against climate change with the international forum.
The government reaffirmed the inclusion and importance of our First Nations people in our climate change response and clean energy future.
It also reinforced that Australia is taking massive action and building on the findings from the latest Annual Climate Change statement.
The Annual Statement is our key reference document and sets the scene for Australia’s actions for the future.
Climate change is the biggest threat to the prosperity and security of the people across our Blue Pacific Continent. For that reason, the Government is bidding to host a COP in partnership with the Pacific.
The statement also highlighted Australia’s commitment to becoming a renewable energy superpower.
