Beyond the limits: Australia in a 1.5-2°C world

In response to recent developments in both climate science and international climate commitments, The Climate Institute commissioned Climate Analytics to examine the impacts on Australia of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C and 2°C, and to provide estimates of the global carbon budgets associated with achieving these temperature limits. This policy brief outlines some of the implications for Australia. It is based on Climate Analytics’ findings, explained in their report, Implications of the 1.5°C limit in the Paris Agreement for climate policy.
