Policy 101: the art of persuasive advice and decision-making in the Australian Government

“Policy-making” is a nebulous term. Climate solutions rely on good policy-making, but what exactly does this mean, and where are the greatest levers for change? This talk aims to demystify the policy-making process by breaking down the different actors, processes, and structures involved, with reference to the Australian government as an example. The talk will further address how the policy-making process can be leveraged for most effective outcomes, degrees of influence, and the role of non-government stakeholder engagement.
