The 2007-08 State of the Regions report focuses on climate change and its implications and impact on Australia's diverse regions. The Report provides a useful overview of international, Commonwealth, state and territory greenhouse policies, as well as critically discussing some of the regional impacts of potential abatement measures and carbon taxes. The Victoria shire of Mount Alexander is presented as a specialist case study.

The issues of water supply, drought, health and legal impacts for local government are also discussed.

The report also provides commentary on the financial state of Australian households as it relates to debt servicing, and concludes with its third review of the state of Australia's telecommunications - broadband infrastructure.
