International emissions trends and policy developments

Vivid Economics was asked by WWF Australia to perform a comparative analysis of Australia’s progress towards attaining its climate change targets against key international comparators. For the identified countries, we analysed historic emissions performance, projected trends and national targets to assess whether or not they are on track to meet their stated goals, and compared the results against projections for Australia. We also reviewed recent policy developments, including on renewable investment, energy efficiency and carbon pricing, for each country to further complement the analysis and provide an insight into their commitment to meet targets and address climate change.
