Australia will help regional neighbours combat climate change with technology: PM – SBS News


Australia will help developing neighbours combat climate change with renewable energy technologies, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has told the United Nations general assembly.

In a virtual speech to the assembly on Saturday morning, Mr Morrison once again defended Australia’s record on climate change action, saying his government had a ‘strong record’ of achievement and was committed to achieving net zero emissions.

While he fell short of expectations to declare any commitment towards net zero emissions by 2050, Mr Morrison said he would release the long-term emissions reduction strategy ahead of the upcoming UN climate change conference in Glasgow.
