The Northern Territory Government is developing the Climate Response Strategy (the Strategy) to ensure the Northern Territory plays its part in mitigating global greenhouse gas emissions and adapts to the impacts of a changing climate. The Strategy will address the most cost-effective ways to mitigate and adapt to climate change whilst exploring the potential economic development opportunities.
The Minister for Environment released a Discussion Paper on 5 October 2018 to stimulate discussion, inform consultation and generate feedback and incorporate into the Strategy. The eight-week public consultation period ended on 30 November 2018.
The draft Climate Response Strategy will be released for public consultation mid-2019, with the Strategy to be finalised by the end of the year.
