Event Overview

How should governments respond to the risks associated with climate change? How will industry respond to both risks and opportunities presented by policy settings?

CEDA's report The Economics of Climate Change will examine a number of the most significant economic issues for Australia and provide recommendations on mitigating risks and maximising opportunities.

At this report launch event authors and leading commentators will specifically define the inevitable consequences of climate change and advocate for how best to allocate resources to adapt to future environmental conditions.

Join CEDA for the national launch of CEDA's second report for 2014 and add your voice to a policy issue which could reverberate for decades to come.

Public event advice – Coronavirus

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
