Climate action to stimulate the economy

Policymakers need a dashboard of climate accounts showing their country's domestic and foreign emissions and what they stand to lose from continued inaction of decarbonisation, says Dr Matthew Agarwala.

With economies in free-fall, all governments, including Australia’s, are on the hunt for opportunities to stimulate their economies while, ideally, addressing long-term challenges. Action on climate change provides a raft of opportunities to do both. As the old saying goes, you should never waste a good crisis. Now is the time for bold action on both fronts.
