Submission on Climate Change and Sustainable Land Management 2007


  • Caritas recognises the urgency of responding to climate change
  • We believe a combination of measures will be required to encourage more sustainable land use, as has been the case with other behavioural change such as stopping smoking
  • We give highest priority to measures that actually reduce emissions and mitigate climate change, over other aims such as adaptation and capitalizing on business opportunities
  • We seek equitable outcomes, in which individuals are not left to carry alone the cost of structural changes which benefit our whole society
