Transformational Environmental Policy Reforms: Innovation Potential in Climate and Water Policy

Wednesday, 26 November, 2014

Professor Mike Young’s presentation on Transformational Environmental Policy Reform was well received by all those who attended.

Using both Australian and International case studies, Professor Young discussed successful transformational environmental policy reforms and the requirements needed to make these reforms a viable option for policy-makers.The presentation was an interesting insight into the necessity for successful transformational innovations, and the challenges that will accompany their creation and implementation.

Successful transformational innovations, as distinct SIGN-POST-Mainfrom incremental policy reforms, are rare but when they work, businesses, the community, and the environment can all gain.

  • What do successful transformational environmental policy reforms look like?
  • What would a transformational water policy reform look like?
  • Is there a way to package them so that policymakers can be expected to consider them seriously?

Mike will explore these questions and discuss the potential for, and potential impacts of, transformational climate policy reforms.
