Complementary or contradictory? : an analysis of the design of climate policies in Australia /

by Denniss, Richard | Australia Institute | Macintosh, Andrew.

Publisher: Manuka, A.C.T. Australia Institute 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Australia Institute. Policy brief ; no. 22.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2011Summary: Contrary to popular belief, the policies that are most effective in driving down greenhouse gas emissions actually raise revenue rather than cost the budget money. The Gillard Government has recently scrapped, or wound back, a range of policies designed to help reduce greenhouse gasses in order to ensure the budget returns quickly to surplus. These policies, including the Cleaner Car Rebate, Green Car Innovation Fund, Green Start Program (the ironically named replacement to the Green Loan scheme as the replacement was scrapped before it started), and the Solar Homes and Communities Plan, are often called 'complementary policies' as they are designed to complement the operation of a (as yet unseen) carbon price. This paper outlines the circumstances in which such complementary policies are required and then assesses whether the recent decision to modify and abolish a wide range of these complementary policies was justified.Availability: (1)

by Karlsen, Elibritt | Australia. Department of Parliamentary Services. arliamentary Library.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Parliamentary Services. Parliamentary Library 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 18 October 2010 Includes bibliographical references.Summary: On 24 November 2007, the Australian Labor Party (ALP) won the federal election, defeating the Coalition Government which had been in power for nearly twelve years. Kevin Rudd was sworn in as Australia's 26th Prime Minister on 3 December 2007. The ALP National Platform, which was formally adopted in April 2007, represented the party's long term aspirations for Australia. In relation to immigration, the ALP ambitiously resolved to implement significant changes for asylum seekers and refugees if elected. Most notably, to end the so called Pacific Solution ; to give permanent, not temporary, protection to all refugees; to limit the detention of asylum seekers for the purposes of conducting initial health, identity and security checks; to subject the length and conditions of detention to review; to vest management of detention centres with the public sector; to retain the excision of Christmas Island, Cocos Islands and Ashmore Reef; and to create a new Refugee Determination Tribunal. In the area of refugee policy the key themes of the platform were humanity, fairness, integrity and public confidence.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Bacchus Marsh, Vic.

It does so through the distinctive voices of fifteen distinguished and non-partisan Australians who are independent experts in their fields. The policy areas considered range from the resources sector, where real damage has been done to one of the great drivers of the Australian economy, to defence, where the absence of strategy and the deep cuts in spending have risked Australia's national security; from border protection, where hundreds of boatpeople have died trying to take advantage of lax Australian policies, to the National Broadband Network, where tens of billions of dollars of taxpayers' funds have been committed without proper process or adequate reporting. Other topics include trade and foreign policy, including the mismanagement of Australia's relations with China; social policy fields such as welfare reform, mental health, and homelessness; agriculture and regional Australia, culture and higher education - and, given the importance of good process in policy-making and public administration, an agenda for reform of the Australian public service. This book tells the sorry story of a failure of ideas, process, and leadership in Australia since 2007.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).
