Direct Action and the Emissions Reduction Fund

Whilst the Federal Government has committed Australia to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 5 per cent by 2020 from 2000 levels, there are a number of problematic policy and implementation issues around the Direct Action plan and its mechanisms, such as the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF). EAGA will continue to proactively engage the Department of the Environment to ensure Councils have equitable access the ERF to support the delivery of mitigation programs.
