Australia's action on climate change /

by Commonwealth. Department of Climate Change.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth. Department of Climate Change 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Australian Government is acting to reduce carbon pollution, create the jobs of the future and secure Australia's future prosperity. ; The Government has set ambitious targets to reduce Australia's carbon pollution emissions. The goal for Australia is to reduce carbon emissions to 25 per cent below 2000 levels by 2020, if there is a fair contribution from all emitters around the world to take strong action to reduce the risk of dangerous climate change by restraining atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases to 450 parts per million. That's reducing the average emissions of every Australian by almost a half over the next ten years. ; If the world is unable to reach agreement on a 450 parts per million target, we will still reduce our emissions in Australia by between 5 and 15 per cent below 2000 levels by 2020. To deliver these targets, prepare our economy for the future and protect our environment, the Government will introduce the Carbon Pollution Reduction sheme in 2011. We recognise our responsibility to act on behalf of future generations. We will strengthen our effort to prepare Australia for a low carbon pollution future through the Renewable Energy Target, research and development of clean energy, and measures to help households, businesses, communities and regions transition to a low carbon future.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Australia's ageing population : how important are family structures? /

by Walker, Agnes | National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1997Description: v, 58 p. ; 21 cm.Other title: NATSEM. Discussion paper ; no. 19.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 1997 Includes bibliographical references.Summary: In Australia, as in most Western economies, concerns about the impact of the ageing of the population have led to a series of policy initiatives that generally aim to assign greater responsibility to individuals for the costs associated with ageing. ; Analyses of the effects of ageing published to date have tended to rely on aggregate projections of population and age structures. Interdependencies between individuals have rarely been taken into account, and it is only in some recent studies that the complex relationship between family structures and the size of government social expenditure has been recognised. Such studies cite broad statistics on the significant support that older people offer their families and on the importance of family members as carers for the aged. ; In this paper traditional approaches to studying the effects of ageing in the population are reviewed and a complementary approach, using dynamic microsimulation, is discussed. The advantage of dynamic microsimulation is that, in projecting future population patterns, the life cycles of individuals can be tracked, along with their family characteristics (such as spouses, children and grandparents) and household characteristics (including finances and wealth accumulation). ; The paper concludes with an account of the development work on dynamic microsimulation modelling at NATSEM, indicating the areas where this tool will be best able to advance understanding of age related policy issues.Availability: (1)

Developing a national Indigenous policy framework that recognises needs, rights and legacies and delivers results . /

by Altman, Jon | Australian National University. Centre for Aboriginal conomic Policy Research.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research 2009Description: PDF.Summary: 'Developing a national Indigenous policy framework that recognises needs, rights and legacies and delivers results', based on a presentation to the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) National Conference, ‘Building a Fair Australia in Tough Economic Times’, Australian Technology Park, Sydney, on 2 April 2009. This paper examines current Indigenous policy, including Closing the Gap, a monolithic approach that privileges statistical equality over all else and undervalues difference and diversity. It argues for a very different policy framework that looks to openly combine three interlinked elements: needs-based citizenship rights, special Indigenous rights, and compensatory ‘social justice’ rights.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
