Proposal for Victorian Climate Charter

The Victorian Government is asking the community what climate laws they want for Victoria. Environmental Justice Australia, in conjunction with Australian Conservation Foundation, Environment Victoria and Friends of the Earth, is proposing a Victorian Climate Charter…proposed Climate Charter sets up a legal framework to ensure Victoria is proactively addressing climate change. The framework will make Victoria a world leader on climate change. It will ensure Victoria can significantly reduce its emissions, and make its best effort to adapt to unavoidable climate impacts…Charter includes emission reduction targets which the Government is legally required to meet, a ‘climate test’ which prevents Government from ignoring the target, and power for Victorian citizens to take the Government to court if it doesn’t comply with its own climate laws.
