Our Publications

this page is under construction

We have not been able to transfer over all the publications we had on our old website, so it will be a bit thin on here for a while.

We are just starting to load our paper newsletter from spring 2008. This is sent (along with our magazine) to all members and supporters. You can access it here as a pdf.

You can also check out our various publications on our national website, available here.


Climate change and equity in Victoria. Focusing on Victoria, this report identif ies the projected direct and indirect effects of climate change and the likely impacts these will have on low-income communities. It also makes a series of recommendations targeted at government, specific industries and community sectors so that as a community, we can take appropriate action to curtail and reduce the likely adverse impacts of climate change.
