Great expectations: will Australia walk the talk on climate change?

View descriptionShare

The Albanese government came to power with big expectations around climate action, but are the government’s actions falling short of their rhetoric?

On this episode of Follow the Money, former President of Kiribati Anote Tong joins Walkley Award winning journalist Stephen Long to discuss the Australian government’s “disappointing” record on climate, the role of China in the region and the prospects of a Pacific UN climate conference hosted in Australia.

There are still tickets available to see Anote Tong in conversation in Melbourne on Wednesday 13 March and in Sydney on Friday 15 March. // @theausinstitute
