AR6 Synthesis Report: Climate Change 2023 — IPCC

Australia and other developed countries must achieve net-zero emissions a decade earlier than most have promised, the chief of the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says.

Australia has gone from leader to “laggard” on climate change research and development.

Australia’s spend is falling and it’s well below that of our peers in terms of the OECD. If we look at the adaption domain, we are lagging significantly. If we go back a decade, we were world leaders,” Professor Howden Australian National University says. And “children being born today are the ones who will pay.”

The IPCC finalized the Synthesis Report for the Sixth Assessment Report during the Panel’s 58th Session held in Interlaken, Switzerland from 13 – 19 March 2023.
