The Australian Government has submitted Australia's Fifth National Communication on Climate Change report to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat.
The report details the progress we have made towards addressing climate change to date, both in Australia and overseas, as well as reporting on our obligations under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol.
As an Annex I signatory to the UNFCCC, Australia is required to submit a national communication every four years. National communications are designed to provide a consistent, comparable, accurate and complete account of action being taken by Parties to the Convention to address climate change.
Australia's Fifth National Communication on Climate Change showcases Australia's comprehensive strategy to address the challenge of climate change and reflects the considerable progress made since the submission of its last National Communication in 2005.
This is the latest in a series of reports to the UNFCCC—which are submitted every four years. Australia's Fourth National Communication on Climate Change was published in 2005.
