Universities Australia held its inaugural National Policy Forum Climate Change: bridging scientific knowledge and public policy at Parliament House, Canberra, on Thursday 18 March 2010.
The forum sought to answer these questions: What are the signs of climate change in Australia? How are agriculture, cities, and the environment already changing? What will be the economic impact of responding to climate change? What will be the cost of doing nothing?
