ABSTRACT
The article reports on the updates of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) in Australia. Included in the updates is the announcement of an approved budget which was welcomed by the researchers. CPRS modifications also include a revised objective of 25% decrease in emissions relative to the year 2000 levels by 2020 and limitation of 10 dollars per tonne of carbon after CPRS would be introduced. Introduction of CPRS would also be delayed to 2011 from 2010 due to the global recession.
