The Hon Greg Hunt MP explains and discusses the Coalition's climate change policy. Adjunct Professor Martijn Wilder and Associate Professor Frank Jotzo present perspectives. This video was recorded at ANU on 18 April 2013. The centrepiece of the Coalition's climate change policy is an "emissions reductions fund" with a reverse auction for the lowest cost emissions reductions. Interest is rising among the policy and business community how such a fund would be designed and operated, its prospects for reducing emissions, and its economic effects. Greg Hunt MP is Federal Member for Flinders, and Shadow Minister for Climate Action, Environment and Heritage. He was Parliamentary Secretary during 2004 to 2007. Before entering Parliament in 2001, he worked for McKinsey and Co and as senior advisor to the then Minister for Foreign Affairs, Alexander Downer. He holds a first class honours degree in law from Melbourne University and a Masters in International Relations from Yale University, which he completed on a Fulbright scholarship. Martijn Wilder AM is head of Baker & McKenzie's Global Environmental Markets and Climate Change practice, having worked on the design and development of climate policy. He is also Chair of Law Carbon Australia, a Board Member of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation and an Adjunct Professor at ANU. Frank Jotzo is director of the Centre for Climate Economics and Policy at Crawford School. He has worked on climate policy and carbon markets since the late 1990s including as advisor to the Garnaut Review.
