Submission: Tasmania’s Draft Climate Change Action Plan 2023–25

by Evie Simpson, Eloise Carr and Rachel Hay

Tasmania’s Draft Climate Change Action Plan is a plan for inaction. Without radical improvement, this plan will do little to reduce emissions or mitigate the impacts of climate change.

The Australia Institute recommends a range of measures to strengthen the plan, including setting sector-based emissions reduction targets; accelerating the transition to an electrified transport sector; ending native forest logging; developing adaptation and management plans; expanding the protected area network; prioritising the production of the State of the Environment Report; and better demonstrating leadership on climate action.
