The Climate Change Discussion Paper, released by the Northern Territory Government shines a light on how we all have a part to play in managing the impacts of this important issue.
The Discussion Paper outlines the effects of climate change in the Northern Territory and the work currently being done to address it. The paper is seeking feedback on this, as well as for informing the development of a Northern Territory Climate Change strategy.
The Paper focuses on several key areas where input is sought on how the Northern Territory should:
- manage its greenhouse gas emissions effectively
- adapt to climate change
- take opportunities for innovative approaches to mitigation and adaptation.
The Northern Territory Government wants all Territorians to have an opportunity to have your say in the development of a Climate Change Strategy that is best suited to the Northern Territory.
Climate change is a complex issue and your ideas will assist in identifying opportunities and prioritise actions for the Northern Territory.
Feedback can be provided until 30 November through the Have Your Say website at www.haveyoursay.nt.gov.au.
