The countries that have contributed the least to climate change will experience the worst of its effects.
Australia’s greenhouse emissions are once again rising, after a decade of consistent declines. But the right policies are already in place to turn things around - they just need to be ramped up.
States and regions are taking the lead on climate change action and, so far, are seeing economic and environmental benefits.
