Second multilateral assessment process Australia

The second multilateral assessment (MA) of Australia took place under the SBI 45 in Marrakech, on 12 November 2016. The aim of this session was to assess Australia's progress in implementation towards the achievement of emission reductions and removals related to its quantified economy-wide emission reduction targets.

A compilation of questions to Australia was published on 1 September 2016 and was replaced with a full compilation of question and answers on 29 October 2016.
