Interviewing Australia’s Climate Ambassador

Food & climate change article written on the 03 Dec 2011

The climate negotiations currently underway in South Africa are particularly interesting for Australia, as we are attending with a carbon emissions tax in place.

I met with Louise Hand, Australia’s Ambassador at the UN Climate talks in Durban to discuss the position Australia is taking at COP 17. This gave her the opportunity to outline exactly what Australia is willing to put on the conference table, and was a rare chance for our supporters to ask questions of the Australian government and have them answered directly by the chief negotiator.

Watch the video to find out what Louise had to say about Australia at COP 17 in Durban, South Africa.
