Outcome and Program Structure

The Commonwealth Government requires entities to measure their performance in terms of outcomes. Government outcomes are the intended results, impacts or consequences of actions by the Government on the Australian community. Commonwealth programs are the primary vehicle by which government entities achieve the intended results of their outcome statements. Entities are required to identify the programs that contribute to government outcomes over the Budget and forward years.

The Authority’s outcome is described below, together with its related program.

Outcome 1 - Provide expert advice to the Australian Government on climate change initiatives, including through conducting regular and specifically commissioned reviews and through undertaking climate change research.
Program 1.1 - Reviewing Climate Change Policies.

Outcome Delivery Strategy

The CCA will conduct regular legislative reviews and undertake climate change research by:

  • Performing desktop and in-depth research and analysis.
  • Commissioning external resources to do analytic work where needed.
  • Conducting meaningful and transparent consultation with experts and stakeholders including business, industry, environment and other community groups.
  • Monitoring developments in climate change policy by reviewing publicly available resources and building networks with expert, local and international organisations.

Performance against this program is assessed in the Annual Performance Statement.
